tricks for improving rear brake
I posted this in the mechanics forum too, but...
I am running avid shorty 4s on CX bike with a dia compe cable hanger that attaches to the seat binder bolt. When you grab the lever, you can keep on grabbing with little affect on the stopping power. I am using standard brake cable housing. Would changing to nokon cables significantly help? Is there a better cable hanger to use? Any tricks?
Check the pads and check the setup. I doubt the housing is the issue. Google up Kieth Bontrager's article on Canti setup.
