They came with my bike, the 26-inch Schwinn 240 DSX it says that it is a "Pro Max front disk brake". It says Xnine on the front break, it that helps. And now i have another problem, i am bringing my bike to a bike expo and i put tire polish on the tires, but it got into my breaks, i fixed my back v-break with water and lots of elbo greese, but my front disk still doesn't work.


Please help my guys, this expo also has a trick showoff and i need my front disk up and running! :( help!!
