So I got a bike as a hand me down from my dad its a Diamond Back Response Sport, I think its something like 4 years old, but since I'm just beginning I think it'll do just fine.
Now to my question. I was told the brakes are original front and rear, the front is still stoppie strong, but the rear seems to meet no resistance, I adjusted the rear brake so that the fixed pad is as tight as possible and when I'm off the bike the brake will stop the rear wheel, but when I'm on the bike it will not stop, or barely even slow me down. I've adjusted the slack on the brake line all the way out and still nothing. This is with new pads also. Any Ideas?
