How to adjust brake pads

Are your brake pads not worn out yet, but do you notice that your bike no longer brakes easily? Then take a look at the position of your brake pads and check whether your brakes are still properly adjusted.

Adjusting the brake pads is done by tightening or loosening the small screws that are in the brake arms. When you turn the screw inward, it moves further away from the rim. If you turn it outwards and thus looser, the brake pad moves closer to the rim. The idea is that the brake pads are close to the wheel. Then the brake pads are positioned correctly.
