Canti problem (stiff arms)
my wifes bike is sufering from poor braking at the rear. When you pull the brake lever, the left hand arm pivots towards the rim as it should, and all is well. The right hand arm (the one with the adjustment screw) just stays there, and is too stiff to move with the cable. I took it off and greased it, but it made no difference once I tightened it fully down. How can I improve matters?
The brakes are Shimano Altus, and it uses a Shimano straddle cable.
Thanks in advance!
