    Attention Juicy 7 Users

    I don't know if this topic has been touched upon, but many of you may like to know this.

    The brake clamps on Juicy Seven brakes (maybe other models too) have an arrow pointing to one of the holes. When installing the brakes onto the bars, you should tighten this bolt all the way first, then clamp down the other side.

    You can see this if you hold the halves together and look from the side. When the arrow side is flush with the opposing surface, there is about 1/8" gap on the other side. This is meant to evenly clamp the brake lever onto the bar.

    If you tighten the arrow side all the way, you still have enough looseness to change the brake lever angle, then snug up the other side enough so it will still move if you crash.



    Again I don't know if this has been touched upon, just thought I'd let everyone know because I've seen them installed incorrectly on 5/5 bikes so far

    Really? I must have skipped over that detail. I've just seen so many installed wrong...
