In Part 1 of this V-Brake tutorial, YouTube's how-to guru of DIY home bike repair shows how to adjust your V brake by starting with a new brake noodle. "I get this coming in the shop all the time," BikemanforU says. "The front brake is disconnected and they can't get it put back together." He continues, "Sometimes the bike falls over and pulls the thing out. Sometimes the brake noodle is severely destroyed." Our demo bike is a a Specialized Vita that suffered salt water corrosion. "This bike happens to be a victim of Hurricane Sandy, and have to put in a no new noodle," he says, adding the bike will appear in all six parts of this tutorial. Besides a brake noodle and possibly some new brake casing, you'll also need a pair of needle nose pliers, a parrot nose cable cutter and a dremel for this home bike repair."I like this Origin8 noodle," BikemanforU says, "Because they incorporate the casing itself into the noodle. It has a steel end and it'll fit into everybody else's (V-brake casing)." SonofA zooms in for a closeup as BikemanforU delivers hands-on instruction. Ferrules are important in this brake fix. "Sometimes you need ferrules. If you can fitt'em, use'em," he says. "If you can't, don't."
