Date Reviewed: September 10, 2000

Strengths:    ease of use, does exactly what it's supposed to do. unlike a piece of cardboard, it is spring-loaded to hold itself to the rim, leaving both hands free to hold and tighten pads. economical.

Weaknesses:    none that i've found.

Bottom Line:   
i love "gadget" tools that make frustrating jobs easier, especially when they are also cheap. just pop it on the rim, slide it under your pads, loosen pad bolts just enough to move them, screw out cable adjuster to tighten pads on tool, hold pad in position while tightening down with the other. i did both mine last night in less than 10 minutes(with beer break), and they stop great and DON'T SQUEAK! what more could you want? 5 big ones for toejam!

Strengths:    
Good idea


Weaknesses:    
The spacing seems a little too much. Toe-In distance should be about 1 millimeter and the spacing on the ToeJam is 1.6 millimeters. This is a good idea for toeing in brakes but the same thing could be attained by using a piece of folded cardboard which is less cumbersome. This idea should be incorporated witha device that holds the brake pad in place when tightening the bolts.

Bottom Line:   


you could save yourself the money and use some cardboard. it is a good idea but the trouble is keeping the pad in place when you tighten them, not the gap.
if you make a tool that holds the pad while you tighten, i will buy it.

Bottom Line:   


It's seven bucks. How can you go wrong? Adjusting breaks should be an easy job but, to get it done right, you need three hands and some spare time. I had to adjust - then test - then adjust - then test - etc. This little plastic Toejam takes the guess work out of this frustrating chore. No more squeaks for me!

Bottom Line:   


I stumbled across this at Supergo and got it because it makes brake setup a two handed job instead of three. It practically guarantees me a perfect brakepad setup. With minimal effort, I can set my brakepads flat against the rim with the perfect amount of toe, then tighten up the pads and I'm set.

Bottom Line:   


Setting up canti-brakes has to be one of the more frustrating jobs in bicycle maintenance. Too much tow..decreased braking, too little tow...your pads will squeeeel likes a piggy... The toe-jam helps take care of this. It's very helpful for such a little tool. (Don't need it for the vee's, but I still have canti's on one bike.) The only problem I have is keeping the spring on sometimes and with one particular set of rims, the jam wants to slip off da bread(rim). What it does great is take the guess work out of the tow..Nice Tool

Everyone has a little trouble adjusting brake pads, so ToeJam Products has invented a new
tool which takes out the guess work in adjusting brake pads. The toeJam clips on the wheel
between the brake pad and sets the proper toe and squares the pad to the rim. Works for
all V brake and Canti brake systems. See it at your local dealer or call ToeJam at Ph/Fax
