Hi, my name is Christian from Mellow Johnny's Bike shop in Austin Texas and today I'm going to show you how to both remove and install a set of brake pads. Basically you''ll need to start out and determine what size wrench you'll need. In this instance, It's a four millimeter and basically you would go ahead and loosen up this brake pad. Remove this brake pad here. In this instance, it's pretty good brake pad. It's brand new. So, we'll just go ahead and reinstall it. In your particular application, you would be replacing it with your new brake pad. So, you'll go ahead install the brake pad here. Tighten that back up. it's usually easier at this point once you've gotten the brake pad relatively snug. You can go ahead and squeeze the brake lever and pull that brake pad flat against the rim. Make sure it's not rubbing on either the tire or below the braking surface on the rim and then go ahead and snug that brake pad up. Double check the alignment. Make sure it's not rubbing and then you'll go ahead and repeat the same exact step for the other side and that's how you install a brake pad.
