    Yep, adjustments are on the shoes.

    Need to do the usual and stick a flathead screwdriver through the disc to access the adjuster. Wind up until disc starts to bind then slacken off a bit. Then adjust handbrake cable until brakes start to bind then wind off a tad. Should have about 5 clicks on the handbrake.


    Snowman, you got your ears on?
