Set-up the main cantilever brake cable. Thread the yoke onto the main cable and clamp it in a position where the straddle wire will rest in the yoke angled roughly 45 degrees …
A carelessly set-up low-profile cantilever may have very low braking power, even though it feels great on the workstand. Direct-pull cantilevers, such as Shimano's "V Brake" ®, have no separate transverse cable.
In particular, when modern low-profile cantilever brakes are used with drop-bar type brake levers, the combination produces excessive mechanical advantage. This problem also arises when using direct-pull cantilevers (such as Shimano's "V-Brakes") with levers made for conventional center-pull cantilevers.
brake system, including brake and lever, has a mechanical advantage of eight. Typically, both the brake lever and the brake itself increase mechanical advantage of the brake system. In this article, I am concerned solely with the increase in mechanical advantage of the brake itself and only one type of brake, the cantilever.
KAMY series of Roadheaders offers the best cutting performance in a wide range of rock formations. Equipped with geometrically optimized transverse or longitudinal cutter heads, these flexible machines can be used to excavate subway tunnels, road tunnels, railway tunnels and water tunnels without using explosives.
