pk ripper lugs moving . . .
« on: September 18, 2005, 01:49 PM »
this is just an enquiry, as the frame is not ready, but . . .

i want the rear canti lugs removing, and welding back on as u brake lugs

its a late model ripper (i bought it in 2002, new)

the frame will be bare metal. anybody handy at the old brazing?

not a million times better, but i get your point.

i can't get used to feel of the v brake. i cant seem to feather it, and it feels weak.

hence i'd rather have a uey. the vbrake is too sharp for me. its on or off.

nothing wrong with mine either, infact the rear v-brake works better than any other brake ive used, and im running aero zytecs!! with unbranded cheapo nasty pads.

have you thought about trying a lever with an adjustable ratio like the XTR levers used to have?
that way you should be able to tailor the feel of the brake to suit your preferences ;)
there were a couple of right hand Shimano XTR brake levers on ebay last week!
