Centering Record rear caliper.

I just installed a Record rear Brake caliper It's an 04 and appears to be single action.

Am I right in thinking that to center I just hold it in postion with a 15mm spanner while tightening the 5mm bolt?

That'd be the single pivot one then. Not sure how to center those, but there will be instructions at www.campagnolo.com.

cheers,

Hi
Loosen the bolt holding the brake to the frame. Pull the brake on hard and keep it on whilst tightening the bolt again. This self-centres the caliper.
Enjoy!
