Just trying to cable up my brakes for the first time and I’m struggling having never owned any arch type avids in the past

Brakes are Supreme’s and levers Ultimates. Using new cables etc.

How do you centre the brake?

As on the both brakes 1 arm moves significantly more than the other.

Cheers

Those are literally the easiest V-brakes out there to adjust and center. Open the thumb screw, pull the lever, close the thumb screw, centered! Best rim brakes ever made.
