A Comprehensive Guide: Adjusting Your Liberty Trike's Brake Tension

Today we'll guide you through adjusting your Liberty Trike's brake tension for optimal performance and safety. Maintaining the correct brake tension is crucial for a smooth and secure ride. In this blog post, we will cover the two points of adjustment: one located by the handlebars and the other by the brake caliper. Following these steps, you can loosen or tighten the tension and lock it down securely once you've found your desired setting. Always test your brakes after any adjustment to ensure they feel right.



Let's begin with handlebar adjustment. Loosen the locking nut by hand in a counterclockwise direction. Next, turn the brake adjustment knob to the right to loosen the tension or to the left to tighten it. Once you have set the desired tension, retighten the locking nut. Give the brake a couple of squeezes to evaluate how it feels. If further adjustment is needed, proceed to the Brake Caliper Adjustment.

At the tip of the front fork, loosen the locking nut near the brake caliper. Then, turn the brake pillar to the left or right, as needed, similar to the handlebar adjustment. Continue adjusting until you find your desired position. Once you have achieved the desired tension, lock down the nut securely. Finally, squeeze the brake lever to test its feel and responsiveness.

Remember, adjusting your brake tension carefully and making incremental changes to achieve the optimal setting is crucial. Rushing or making drastic adjustments can lead to safety issues or poor performance. Take your time and test the brakes after each adjustment to ensure they function correctly.

By following these step-by-step instructions, you can effectively adjust the brake tension on your Liberty Trike and enjoy a safe and comfortable riding experience.
