    Setting up tektro breaks... With MS Paint illustration

    So, I just bought a new break and Im a little confused as to how to set it up.
    In which picture is the line running the right way? Im not sure where the... er. stopper at the end of the line should be.



    The tektro level I got is not the exact same in the picture, but hopefully you'll get the point.

    edit: Sorry guys, completely wrong picture.

    Depending on the brake, they will both work. Pic 2 will push the housing towards the brake. Pic 1 will pull the cable away from the brake. I've set them up both ways depending on the type of brakes, but I can't remember which way worked for which brakes. Just use the one that works.

    I'm guessing the OP is using cx levers with old centerpull brakes?

    That's right. You just pull the lever, it drops the needle, and she (he?) goes flat out super fly on the dance floor. Dig?

    If you're gonna do endos like that everytime you use the brake, I'd go brakeless.
