Front Brake Caliper Adjustment on REI Co-OP Step Through 24" Kids Bike
Hi, after receiving and putting the bike together a few days, the entire front brake caliper unit feels much looser when compared to the back brakes. I've tried readjusting all screws, including the barrel adjustments, but it's not solving the overall wiggle. It creates a loud grinding/vibrating/clicking sound when my child rides the bike, which obviously is not going to go over well. The tension when pressing the front brake isn't the same as the back brake either, so something is definitely off. Please let me know if there is anything I can do since I can't take the bike into a store to be tuned up. Thanks!
