The brakes on my Trek T2000 are over 5 years old now and done around 30,000 miles. Most of our rides involve a lot of climbing and long slow technical descents so it is vital that we have effective brakes,. This obviously increases the wear and so are continuously having to adjust them now which is taking up far to much time.
I believe the brakes are Avid shorty but with the reduce distance the brake arms on the STI shifters have to travel, combined with possibly a kink in the cable which seems to cause some of the slack in the system, we just can't seem to find a setup which gives good braking without rubbing. I'm sure replacing the cables would help but my pilot would still like a braking system which has some sort of adjustment built in to make it easier to adjust them as the pads wear.
Any suggestions would be welcome.
