Self maintenance tips : Noise Reduction

1. In your riding time without any adjustment of the brake cable, if you hear a metallic scratch sound from a wheel then adjust its brake band. In this photo, grip the red circle and bend it outside(not too much!!). This is not a serious(or open occured) problem. Because the friction(between the brake band and the brake drum) starts from the blue circle, the band would be automatically arranged following the drum as riding & braking.

2. If you hear a pulse(or bit) sound(tuck tuck tuck…), tighten the nozzle cap of the rear wheel. These in-line photos show the reason. (You can here the pulse sound, here)
