I am finishing up the overhaul of my 90/91 Voyageur. I need to replace the rock hard DIA-COMPE brake pads, so I picked up some Kool Stops for it. But I can't seem to get the blasted things to adjust properly.
There are adjustments for fore/aft, up/down, toe in/out, etc. And, don't forget the straddle cable. When I think I get one of the pads aligned correctly, then I notice the other side is now not contacting the rim evenly.
I've worked on lots of side pull and centerpull brakes, but this is my first time working with cantilever brakes. And, I have another bike with them waiting in the wings.
What is the secret?
Here are some pics.
