    Carlos.......Lube my brakes?

    Carlos............
    This weekend Kristin was playing around with my bike and she said I had to lube my brakes. I've never heard of that before. Can you please give me some instruction on this?
    It must suck to be you.

    well, kristin's been kinda weird ever since she moved up to elitist city. it's gotta be the air! she probably meant you needed to lube your cables. or, maybe she's just rambling on.


    this is kristin in 1 of her manic stages. she's eyeing the dude to the near right:

    brake lubing?

    you're running V-Brakes right?

    she could have meant:

    -you need to lube the cables and housing? how old are the cables and housing? if they are older than 8 months, teh brakes probably feel kinda draggy. time to change out the brake cable and housing.

    -your brakes are squeaky. you might need new pads if they are really worn or glazed (they go from squishy rubber to hard plastic consistency from heat build up) and need to be changed.

    OR

    there might be some kinda residue from chain lube, bike wax, spary lube, windex, grease..... on the rims 'causing the brakes to squeal.

    -if you've crashed really hard, you may have bent one of the arms or crushed one of the bushings the brake arms move on...that causes binding...the brakes feel sticky or are kinda hard to pull.

    -in a crash, one of the noodles may be bent, causing some binding at the brake noodle.

    -Kristen had, like, 30 beers, and those $1.50 Kamikazis, and was sooooooooo "gone", that she heard noises and felt things that just weren't there.

    do the brake levers feel as smooth as the day you bought them?

    how long has it been since you've changed out the cables and housing?

    Chief, Kristin looks like she's lost...in a forest of tiny nyphs and wood sprites. she'll be safe there among the smurfs and My Little Ponys.
