    direct pull cantilever brake service

    Is there any information on dissassembly, lube, assembly of these brakes? I went to the Sheldon Brown site and he only talks about adjustment.
    The problem I have is mine always get sluggish. When I release the brakes the levers are slow to spring back to their at-rest position. Right now I have one brake arm that doesn't spring all the way back and the pad contacts the rim when the brake is not applied, causing drag.
    TIA
    more cops have been killed by donuts than guns in chicago it is a medical fact ask any doctor.

    Could be bad cable/housing. Possibly not enough grease between the calipers and bosses on fork/stays
