    R + R shimano XT v-brakes

    I'm in the process of totally stripping and replacing most of the components on my Mtb. One of the few things I'm reusing are the XT V-brakes.

    I'm in the process of taking them apart and it seems that the peices of the lower pivots that fit to the frame/fork can be disassembled, cleaned, and relubed. I'm a little puzzled with the upper pivot that the pads mount on. There is a set screw in the arm that holds a bushing in place but removal this does not allow the upper pivot to come apart.

    Anyway, is there a way to take the upper pivot apart or will I have to be happy with just cleaning and lubing with a drop of oil?

    just give it some oil. if they are parallel push vbrakes, they will crap out before too long anyway--they always work real real nice when new, and then just inexplicably crap out
