f&r v brakes
i know when purchasing v brakes there is the designation for front and rear but what is the diffence?is it because the wheel travels in different directions , if i ran fronts on the rear what would happen -will shimano take away my birthday?
Trek 1000, two mtbs and working on a fixie for commuting.
Mine were different when I bought F&R Avid v-brakes. They are also offered in a variety of angles from small parts places such a bikeparts.com and aebike.com. From my experience, the front takes 90 or more and the rear takes 90 or less - though I suppose that also may depend on bike frame sizes.
My rear brake-cable is to the left (non-drive side) of the seatpost. So my rear v-brake has the noodle installed to the left on the brake. I could reverse it, but it would need to go over rear-derailleur cable and crowd the front on as well.
