@bradtx, maybe I had the wrong length yoke cable, or whatever it's called. I had to squeeze like hell to stop well. I have very strong hands, and thank God for them. I would not survived with those brakes and weaker hands. I'm thinking of shorting the yoke cable on the new brake for a little extra leverage. This one is adjustable, unlike the one on the Alivio.
