Default Re: WOW ! I thought I was on my own...

I had a bit of a problem with the back brake earlier in the build which I sidelined till I could think about it more, the problem was the original V brake works in conjunction with dedicated levers and just changing them for bigger levers makes them worse, the brake did sort of work but was very spongy and could be pulled all the way back to the bar, the answer was a gadget called a 'Travel agent' from a company called Problem Solvers which works by altering the leverage and to be totally frank I dont really understand how ! But I can report the fact it works really well :-) and the brake is now solid and works extreamly well
