V brake question
Ok, I'm a avowed retro-grouch who recently bought a Ross Signature MTB with more modern hardware such as V brakes where the primary brake cable goes to one brake arm and there's a second cable that clamps on and goes to the other brake arm.
The rear seems to be working fine, however in the front the left brake pad contacts the rim first and pushes the rim to the right before the right pad makes contact.
My question is: Is this a function of where the second cable attaches to the main cable? If so, which way should I adjust it? If not, where else should I look? I serviced the brake pivots, putting it back together as it came apart, so I don't believe lack of lubrication to bee the culprit.
