Hi, My mate has a really old MTB and has lost a ring from his front right cantilever brake. Its function seems to be to hold the pad in place. Does anyone know what its called and where I can get a replacement? I'm afraid I don't know the make or model of the brake.
This is what it looks like:
Thanks for reading,
That ring is to adjust the pad angle. Not sure what you would call it. Eccentric washer maybe.
