This is odd, I'm working on a new resto project, had a quick ride, front braking rubbish so everything had to come off:
Calipers all de-gunked, the pads were as glazed as tiles so thought that was the problem. Anyhoo, new pads, new (non campy ) cable, same problem...rubbish front brake. So swapped pads for some part worn Dura Ace, cleaned the rims with soapy water and then a wipe of acetone to remove any grease and a quick whiz with some emery paper. Still crap.
Tried the new pads which I ran across some 120 grit and still no improvement.
OK, desperate measures, stuck in a new front wheel...guess what, still rubbish...sooooo....
These are Campag calipers, 8 speed ergos, does the type of cable make a difference? There's a new campy cable at the rear but a cheapo generic cable at the front.
Any thoughts from the wise elders of the tribe???
