new here to the whole bike maitenance and work on your own bike thing..

My 2012 Kink Gap does not have brakes and I have an old UNUSED DK Six-Pack..


I was wondering if its possible to take the back brake off the DK and throw it on the Kink?

Possible,

easy?


How do I determine if this is possible?

If they're U-Brakes they should work. Which I'm pretty sure they are. If they're on top of the chain stays or on the bottom of the seat stays, I believe it should work.

Per Bikepedia it is a brake type: Tektro FX-30 U-brake rear brakes, Tektro 289A rear levers -

your going to need-
1- thin profile, 13mm open ended wrench,
an allan key, cannot remember what size,
cable cutters,
pliers.

assuming you have brake mounts on your bike.
just unscrew the brakes from the old bike(pm me if you wanna sell it btw) and swap em over to the new one. now, make sure your wheel is aligned with your chain tension where you want it, using hte 13, their should be a slot that will fit it, make sure the allan bolts arnt fully tightened down, and adjust the tension until their both the same. and are equal distance from the rim when the straddle cable is hooked up.

after that, adjust brakepads, and toe in- set up tension, spin and check, straddle bike, and hold lever and double check brakes make sure the tire is sliding and not moving,

final give a ride with proper safety gear to make sure they work. youtube can give a visual guide if needed

I meant it more as like, maybe I, myself was missing it somehow..

In my head I felt like I was running the lite version of this page.. you know like how Outlook has the "lite" version of itself via a web page..

Guess this is how Vitalbmx runs..

Thanks!
