Well, I got my new Deore V-brakes. While I was reading the installation manual I noticed all the torque measurements,I thought," Man, only a dork would follow this, and besides, I have a steel frame". But I found out the hard way that you have to pay attention. I put the calipers on but they still felt loose, so I decided to crank'em on a little harder. I popped the top right off one of the bolts that secure the caliper. I was very lucky that I was able to get the threaded part of the bolt out of the fork, and then I was even luckier to have a spare bolt. So the moral, DON'T tighten things to much!! And if you don't have a torque wrench, go till it feels snug, and then just a little further.
