After posting my comment I did a bit more research and realised that I had ordered/fitted the wrong levers For some stupid reason I thought the SCR-5 where the equivalent of the Tektro RL520. Stupid stupid stupid.

Now doing an urgent order on Chain Reaction Cycles to get some Cane Creek Drop V levers, i.e., the correct ones for v-brakes as I need them in a hurry for my Dreaming Tour.

Lesson learned ... do the research properly!
