I just purchased a new set of Paul Touring Cantis for my Surly Cross Check. As I was installing them onto the Frame and Fork Cantilever Brake pivots, I noticed what seems like a problem.
The brakes come with a bushing that you slide over the brake pivot (or post). Because of the slightly larger diameter at the base of the pivot, the bushing will not fully seat on the pivot. This leaves about a 5mm gap. As a result, the new brake sits around 5mm forward off the frame and fork as compared to the old brake.
Has anyone experienced this issue? If so, what was the solution?
I thought about getting a new brake pivot that would be compatible with the bushing but I'm not sure the existing pivots are removable.
