Probly because you don't need to crank down on that bolt so hard. And you also need to adjust the spring tension so they snap back.


Basically...you suck and don't know what your doing so take it to your local bike shop and watch how they do it. Then you can do it yourself next time.

Kinetik, chill out on the guy. I can't believe I'm defending someone from being flamed for once, but he just asked a question, and not everyone is an expert on brakes, myself included. I barely tamper with my brakes, and don't like them so much that I'm probably going to get rid of them.

I believe I'm going to do that, but I want to try a straight cable first... my dad would kill me if I just took off my brakes after breaking my leg... so I'm going to try the straight cable and then eventually take them off if it isn't any better than my crappy gyro.

Meh maybe your right. But either way. Take it too a shop brakes are a pain in the ass especially if you don't know what your doing.
