I am just setting up some Dia-Compe 287V Brake Levers with some older Shimano STX V brakes. These take the full size brake pad. I have used the little noodle they supply that comes out of the brake hood but there still seems to be a lot of drag on the rear. I actually had to put the brake caliper into the first hole on the brake boss to increase the spring tension or they would not open completely. I tried it without the noodle and it actually seemed worse. There seems to be quite an angle coming out of the back of the hood. This is where the frictions seems to be. Any thoughts?
