i have two nice modern geared road bikes, and a nice vintage steel roadie, they ALL stop wayyy better than my SS.
the SS came with low end tektro brakes. i thought that was the problem : bought campy mirage brake calipers with koolstop salmon pads: NO HELP. cables are jagwire. they are new, but not so new that they havent had a chance to get the initial stretch out. i cant imagine the mush is coming from the levers. any further suggestions?
are the campy mirage calipers just not that good ( they were inexpensive) maybe i need to jump to shimano 105's or ultegra? i dont want to just throw money at the bike without results.
i commute to work on this bike, and would really like a better lever feel and less mushy overall feeling.
