  27. Don't forget to check the spring screws at the outside sides of brake brackets. First squeeze brake handles and let go. Now spin the wheel. If the wheel is catching on one side, either loosen the spring screw on that side or tighten on the opposite. After that, squeeze the brake handle, let go, spin the wheel and see if it is still catching. Repeat the steps until all is satisfactory.
