Total disc brake newbie but keen to try it out on the back of my old Orange P7
I have a compatible wheel, but need the brake and pads (and potentially lever too, or can I use cantilever lever with it??)
Thanks you and sorry in advance for my ignorance!
Cable disc brakes usually work with a v-brake lever, not a cantilever brake lever - different pull ratios. Set up nicely though, they're good.
That’s great to know, thank you. I’ll probably add a v-brake lever to the list then as I’ll be aiming to set this up myself and so the simpler the better!
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
