So, I have found my long lost brake rocker bit, but does anyone know how to fit the damn things?

After MM, I would like to fit some LX canti's I have, but for the life of me I cant remember how the rocker goes.

Cheers :wink:


(camera phone pics late last night - excuse the quality! :lol: )

Bolt goes through a hole in your frame. The cable housing runs to a stop on one arm of the rocker, and the cable passes through and clamps at the cantilever. The short cable runs to the other cantilever.

Here we go. Cable clamp at one end, straddle cable loops throught the slot on the other end.
