V-brake set-up help


Recommended Posts

I recently decided to try a V-brake in my front wheel, I ended up buying SD7 arms with heatsink blue vee pads. I'm using an echo urban fork in my bike and I'm having trouble setting up the brake. It seems that the spacing between the two arms is not big enought so I can't get the pads to hit the rim square.

Does anybody has any hints that can help me with this set up?

Hey mam,

(Presuming you are already making sure the thinner dish is on the inside) Rather than running a dish and curved washer at all; get your file and test your patience at making one singular washer that corrects the angle perfectly on it's own.

Other than that.. Get a thinner rim :mellow:

All the best bro,
