sand the pads, clean the rim, re-tension brake arms, lube the cable, use more fucking lube in the cable.

Take the straddle cable off and squeeze the actual brakes with your hands. They should give a firm snap back. If not, then you need to re-tension them

All the clear brake pads i have ever used give an eardrum rupturing squeal.

Clear pads on painted rims squeak.
Black pads on chrome rims squeak.
Black pads on brushed rims don't squeak

In my experiences.

Taking brakes off is one's own decision. I was brakeless for years and then went back about a year ago. But calling someone a pussy for having brakes is lame as fuck

Sounds like you are one of those people thinking everyone should ride the same way on the same things. Should he mimic your setup and clothing and everything?



As to the brake pads, I ONLY toe in the thickness of a business card folded in half.
