Does this look right?
I don't think I've had to fiddle with canti brakes for years, to me it looks like the pad holders are too low? But if I raise them the pads are at the wrong angle?!

Perfect, and wow you got those MArin lites to work. Mine kept on flopping to one side.

I don't think they are Marin Lite are they? More like Lizard or Fred Salmon!
One of them stops moving if the canti stud bolt is done up, I need to adjust the bush inside tomorrow!
Also I had to change to Shimano pads on the rear otherwise there was no way to get them to clear the tyre!
