I replaced these pads with a new set of the same on some old Avid Tri-allign 3 v-brakes.
I was looking forward to using these brakes on my new bike ( I have had them stashed away for 3 years since I have been riding disc brakes ).
The front does not have enough power and feels spongy.
I remember these brakes being plenty powerfull to stop me.
These pads have an angle end to set toe in and remove mud/water from the rim. Is this needed or can I sand it off so the pads have better rim contact. It eventually wears off anyway.
Another thing I was thinking is the last bike these brakes were on was a C-dale with a Headshok (no fork flex). Now they are on a Fox (which has flex at the bosses).
This could be some of my problem.
