My girlfriend and I are the proud new caretakers of her mother's old Peugeot tandem. It was purchased in '81 (I hope that qualifies for this forum) and is still has most of its stock components.
I'm finding the reach of the brake levers to be awkwardly long, and I don't know if it is just a bad set up or a weird handlebar/lever combination or if everything is actually 'right' but just feels wrong to me since all I know is more modern levers.
Here's a picture of the set up:
Those are the original Mafac levers operating the original Mafac cantilever brakes. I'm not sure of the model.
If there is anything you all could clue me into, I would appreciate it. Thanks so much!
