Gonna need some more information, guy. What kind of brake? How do you mean weaker? Does the lever pull in to the bar too close, or does it just not slow as hard? If this is a new bike you can usually take it back to the shop for a new bike tune.

Definitely not a new bike, but its new to him. The bike was left on his lawn if memory serves. He's done the right thing by taking it to the cops and checking with LBS's to see if anyone is missing a spechy.

We really do need to know what exactly is happening and what components you have on there. If you could upload a pic, it would really help us help you.
