I've read some threads on here about brake squeal, and know about getting better pads, toe in, etc.
Just got new canti brakes, and sure enough, the front one squeals. I'm gonna try the above suggestions for sure, but I was also wondering...
I'm pretty sure it's because I have more mechanical advantage here than I need; the brake really "bites" the rim. I can feel the pads squishing in there with modest effort, and it's stop-slide, stop-slide...thus the squeaks. Would raising the yoke make a difference? I would think that it would.
Also, my brakes have the z-link things and not the traditional yoke wires. These come in longer lengths, but does anybody know how they are measured so I know what to order?
