Why do these arguably very similar Shimano V-brakes have the pin that goes into the frame at such a different place? Left is new Deore LX, right is old.
Placing the pin of a new Deore LX brake in the middle hole of the frame (which Shimano recommends and works with the older V-brake I have) leaves me with no tension on the spring. Moving the pin up one hole creates enormous tension on the spring, which is not ideal when it comes to lever force. Any ideas?
