Paul Neo-Retro Setup Help(4 posts)

Paul Neo-Retro Setup Helppeter in NVA
May 4, 2003 7:39 AM
Just got Neo-Retro for the front and Paul Touring for the rear. My longtime Avid squealing in gone and the moduation is great...but the front brake is not that powerful.
I recall past posts on how to set the straddle cable height. My LBS installed them but has no experience with Paul's. How far should the apex of the cables be above the pivots?

About 6" works fine for my Neo's.

Thanks. I assume you mean the vertical distance. My height is only 4 inches, I'll give it a try. The rears work like a charm...I can stop the bike only with them (with much sliding).

Here's one from Paul's Website...

And heres a pict of my bike's front end after this morning's commute. The brakes are a different manufacturer but the design is very similar...
