I have found THE tool for all retrobike-members! Used it for quit a while now and everytime I use it it leaves me with a smile. I should have had it much earlier! It saves me with a lot of trouble..

Here it is: the Tacx Brake Shoe Tuner T4580 for setting up the brake shoes on canti's, V's and even Magura's!

Everyone should have one!

Interesting..... Time spent fettling brake pads is a part of life I find quite enjoyable but I would like it back :-)

Just dug this out:
