Default Re: Side pull calliper brakes?

I ordered the side pull brake kit from Pirates. Calipers didn't reach the rim on my Cranny. I ovaled out the hole in the fork, elongated the adjustment area on the brakes caliper slots and made sure the wheel was as far up in the dropouts as possible to no avail. Still grabbed my tire. Not good. Moved it to the back and flipped it under the existing fender mount cross bar. It's better than just the coaster brake...
