Default v brakes for right side cable routing....

my main issue was not the moving parts or how many moving parts
total...but the total number of parts that bolt together to make the
arm.

it just never felt as solid or as firm as the Ultimates or even a set
of XTR v brakes...

sure...but again.....like the running of a full length of
housing....i'd like to avoid having to modify or bolt things to the
frame to get this work out......


Then I'm afraid, with the restrictions, caveats, and preferences you've
mentioned, that the conversion is not possible.

Maybe you should consider selling your bike?

E.P.

ok...i've got an older frame....rear brake cable is routed on the right
hand side of the top tube...

i've used v brakes in the past but they required the 130 degree
noodle...which worked fine but always seemed to have tons more
drag...even with a new cable and noodle...than a 90 degree....

even resorted to cantis to resolve the problem in the mean time....they
work great but require all sorts of ugly bolt-on clamps...

i want to get a new V brake but can't seem to find many that allow for
the noddle to anchor to the right arm instead of the left....

i know Cane Creek make the DC5s but they are ugly as sin....and make me
physically ill just looking at them....they also have many moving parts
and didn't have the solid feel i like....

Paul components makes some as well, but the lack of a rubber boots
means i've had to clean out the noddle quite often and since i'm in a
temperate climate...i can't afford to leave water and mud access to my
brake cable....

and the Avid Ultimates....nice...but unfortunatly...the fronts tend to
squeal like an 8 year old girl. i can hear the barrage of mind
numbingly redundant replies typing up about toe in, toe out, toe up,
under toe....scouring the pad....scouring the rims...scouring the
sink....trust me...i've owned these too and even after having Avid send
a variety of pads and holders...it never went away....


anyone seen any nice v brakes that allow for right arm routing?


There's always machining a pair of V brake arms so the cable fastens at the
opposite end etc...

i wasn't looking to convert anything....i origianlly wanted to know if
any one had any knowledge of a brake with a specific feature ASIDE from
those i mentioned as i'd already owned them and didn't care for them.
