dude dont make your brakes tight or you will snap you cable trust me $12.50 adds up after a while. heres a great tip if you in the mood to by a new rim get silver no paint cause the paint just wears into you brake pad so just get silver and put some pop on your rims makes is sticky and your pads with grip it easyer but dont put to much because your brakes will stick to the rim make sure your spring in your brake is nice and springy dont tighten your brakes to much or that spring is useless. the pop trick works on black painted rims but it wears off you have to keep putting it on. with the pop trick you may think ur bike is a crap because it makes a really loud skicky noise :shock: but at least your brakes work

I suggest Diatech Hombres with a straight cable. They work excellent on a good chrome rim.

I ride with no brakes, heh. It will feel weird once I get my new bike and it has brakes, I'll probably end up taking them off.
