    Cross Post: Noodle Degree?

    Anybody know what difference the noodle degree has. I found a cheap pair of brakes on Cambria, but it gives me noodle degree (90 or 130) instead of Front or Rear. Does the degree have to do with whether they are for the front or rear?

    90 degree noodles are for the rear and front if you use the right brake lever to activate the front. 130 degrees is for the front if you activate from the left brake lever. I THINK...

    Regardless, noodles are cheap and can be bought separately.

    I'm no expert, but...

    Have a look at your cable routing. I just put new noodles on my wife's bike, and used a 130 on the rear, and 90 on the front, but I went purely by which would give the smoothest cable routing.

    I like 130 rear...

    ...for heel clearance. Performance wise doesn't make a difference, so use what makes for the best routing.
