So I'm upgrading my brakes calipers to some 105's from shimano.
A simple task you would think - except I can't find my cable cutters to make a nice neat cut.(anyway, that's not my problem)
I have standard rims (ie not deep) and the calipers have a 49mm drop however, when I press the calipers down onto the rim to install the cable the pads are nowhere near the rims, they are well up onto the tyre.
What I am doing wrong here? I pads are as far down on the caliper arms as they can go, but it's not long enough.
