@nathan#1fan: you hate brakes, but you came out of your way to watch this video and share that useless peice of information with the world?

i can never quite sort out the lever arm tension with the shifter and the alan key ... just to much for my pretty little mind to handle ... take it to the bike shop

Best line up your blocks and connect cables up before setting any spring tension , also blocks should tow in a bit or your brake will squeal and squeek if you set them even to the rim, .
