I thought my problem was solved.
The brakes got fixed and it still couldn't spin.
Okay, here's the situation: Since I got the Dahon Jetstream EX, I've been having a lot of fun with it. Notably, the downhill runs. I mean, this bike can really brake!
When I brought in the bike, It didn't freewheel as much as it did at the workshop.
I thought the calipers and brakepads were throwing tantrums. And it did!
|The rotor and brakepads are rubbing causing brake drag|
I'm not sure what to say.
Back at the Rodalink when the rear wheel was spun a few times, it was as smooth as silk.
I even thanked mechanic Wong who adjusted the brake calipers.
Now, back at home, its a totally different problem.
I noticed that there were no gaps between the pads and the rotor.
Each time the wheel spun, it was dragging.
Looks like the diaphragm may be expanded a bit, causing the pads to 'swell'.
This was the same problem I faced when the brake started to drag.
Well, looks like the Jetstream is gonna spend some time at the dealership. The brake needs to be fixed..
