Ok, I bought an old bike (Specialized Stumpjumper) on the cheap. It had center-pull brakes on it.
I bought some Avid Single Digit 5s and put them on.
The problem is there is way to much play in the brake lever.
I have tried all the combinations of spacing for the pads and tweaked with just about everything that can be adjusted and have had no luck.
There is not a lot of space between the rim and the pads.
The levers are OLD Shimano XT STI.
All I can think is that the levers pull a different length then V-brake levers?
