Pad wear adjustment
To adjust for brake pad wear, simply loosen the eyebolts that attach the brake pads and slide them closer to the rim. (During the initial setup, set the pads close to the brake to allow for this adjustment.)
We don’t recommend installing barrel adjusters for adjusting pad wear. When the pads wear, they hit the rim in a different location. On centerpull brakes, the pad hits the rim higher, so the pad can cut into the tire and cause a blowout. On cantilevers, the pad hits the rim lower and can ‘dive’ under the rim, resulting in a total loss of braking. Thus, the pad angle needs to be adjusted when the pads wear. This is easily done with the post-style pads used by our brakes.
