I ran a drill into the kona dog collet so the cable sits nice and snug, works beautiful
cheers for the tips
This works only on larger size frames - 19 and above. 18 is poor, 17 and below it doesn't work at all (the picture above is of a size 16).
It works ok on 18" if you bend the V brake noodle to a better shape (tighter radius). It's what I'm using on my '95 Kilauea with an Avid Arch Rival brake.
i'm running that method on my 18in hack bike right now. no faffing, it's perfect
Avid do smaller noodles that might even make it work on a 17.
the orange bike is my old 18in lava dome - showing standard outer and nokon on an 18in frame
