So I discovered today whilst gently rolling down a slope into a tree that my handbrake on my S2 Sport isn’t great!

I’ve read some threads  about adjustment but what I’m not clear on is whether I need to remove the hub to do this and therefore whether I need this “magic” hub nut removing tool.

Advice gratefully received as ever.

Thanks, Michael.

You should try to rotate the in-hub brass knurled adjusters with a flat blade screw driver through the “hole” in the drum with a good torch you can see what is happening. Rotate the brass nut clockwise to lock the shoes and back off 8 clicks. If that does not work the club has the tool for hire (through me!), but it is out on loan at the mo.

Its not the winning but taking part! or is it taking apart?

Thank you, all adjusted now. The slack in the cable is gone (and there was a lot of slack) and handbrake working much better.

Re. The hub removal nut tool...good to know, thank you.
