Shorty Ultimate Installation Problem
I have a strange problem with an installation of some Shorty Ultimates. Even after figuring out that the SRAM install instructions are less than user friendly, we saw that the so called red dot spring (front) goes on the left side - as you look at the front brake from the front, not as you ride the bike. However, the brakes spring into the closed/engaged position and not the open position. This is the oddest thing I have ever seen on CX brakes, and it is driving us nuts. Anyone else have this happen before? What is the fix? What are we doing wrong?
