Hello Strida Forum, although I’me not new to Strida bikes, it is my first post here on this forum. So I hope I am posting this Problem/Question like I suppose to do it…
I am running into a problem in adjusting the rear brakes of my Strida 5. In the manual there are clear instructions about adjusting the inner brake pad, but not so clear about the outer brake pad.
As showen on page 14 of the user manual (drive.google.com/file/d/0BzaK6s … txNEU/view) there should be a screw which is used to adjust the outer brake pad. This is also mentioned on one of the posts on this forum (How to adjust outer disk brake pad?).
Now comes my great mystery. On the Strida 5 there is no such screw. According to Strida Canada (stridacanada.ca/strida-brakes-explained/) the barrel adjusters could be used for this purpose to. But when I adjust those two, just enough to place the brake pad as close as possible to the brake disc, there is no room left for my brake cable clamp to brake at all.
The outer brake pad looks just as thick as the inner brake pad. Also my Strida is only 1/2 years old. So I don’t think my problems comes from worn pads.
I also have a Strida 3. This Strida does have the screw which I mentioned earlier.
Here some pictures to illustrate my issue.

This is the screw.

I hope anyone could help me out.
