For weeks I’ve been struggaling getting the front brake balanced, at first I’ve thought I was just being a noob, but I was extra skeptical today and adamant I shouldn’t have to set the arm tension asymmetrical.
In the pictures you can see the tread is reversed and directional, I’ve flipped the wheel, not the skewer, so tension is applied the same side in both
And, please, take my word for it that wheel is firmly and straight in the drop out,
Yet when it’s flipped round you can see it shifts from one side to the other?
Top down it doesn’t seem to have a wobble, it’s the whole way round!
When reconnecting the brake the wheel went from rubbing heavily one side to the other, quite dramatically
It’s bizarre? Anyone want to guess at what’s causing it?
