i recently bought a set of centre pull brakes.
when i came to fit them to the bike, the front one was fine.
when i came to fit the rear brake there was a problem.
basically when the pads are at there lowest point in the brake they are hitting the side wall of the tyre.
so should the rear brake be a different one from the front ?
i have enclosed a couple of pics of the rear brake i tried to fit.
has anyone got any ideas why this rear brake will not fit.
many thanks in advance. jeff.

so has anyone got one.
