    What's the difference between front and rear

    Being a clever sod I've thrown caution to the wind and fitted a front XT V-brake to the rear of our tandem. Having done so, in time honoured tradition, I then read the instructions. They seem adament that these brakes should not be fitted at the wrong end.

    I've swapped left and right pads so they face the correct way but I'm really puzzled as to any other esoteric differences I should know about.

    Any thoughts guys.
