Rear Mechanical Disc Brake setup

Posted on
  • 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!
