Regular mount brakes, also known as standard or traditional mount brakes use a single bolt design.
The following steps apply to both front and rear eeBrakes:
All eeBrakes come with a mounting kit including the required bolts, washers, and spacers as well as a set of Cane Creek brake pads specifically designed for carbon rims. Cane Creek brake pads designed for aluminum rims are sold separately.
We recommend only using SHIMANO or SRAM STYLE cartridge brake PADS that are compatible with your rims.
Brake Pad Installation:
The eeBrake tool-less pad design features a raised boss to retain the pad in the shoe. Install the pad by sliding it all the way into the brake shoe. Press the pad firmly until completely the pad is seated into position. Verify that the brake pads are oriented correctly. Verify that the Rounded edge of the brake shoe is facing the same direction as the wheels forward rotation. Before Installing the eeBrake ensure the centering adjuster and cable tensioner are in a neutral position.
Mounting the Regular Mount eeBrake:
Slide the thin washer provided in the mounting kit onto the brake and apply grease to the bolt threads. With a 5mm Allen wrench, install the mounting nut. Ensure at least 5 full turns of engagement when mounting the brakes to the bike. Approximately center the brake on the wheel and tighten the nut to 7 - 9 Newton meters.
Installing the Brake Cable:
Install the cable and housing into the cable and then adjust the screw and lever. Pass the cable through the quick-release lever. Align the cable in a straight path. Insert the brake cable into the cable groove and install the square cable plate and bolt. The housing alignment should allow the cable adjuster to naturally seat in the lever cradle. The housing must be long enough to allow for free movement as the brake is operated. Additional care should be taken when mounting rear brakes to frames with aero designs or limited space. Before securing the cable, ensure the lever arm is in the correct position then tighten the cable bolt to 4NM. - Reference eeBrake Instruction manual
Brake Pad and Spacer set up:
With the shoes slightly loose, set the pads to correctly contact the rim centering it on the brake track. Set the pads to be 1.5 to 2mm from the rim on each side. Use the provided pad spacers to accommodate a variety of different rim widths. The spherical washer must be used in all setups. Then fix the shoes to the arms by tightening the shoe bolts to 4NM. Use the centering link to make fine adjustments to the pad engagement - ensure that pads grab the rim simultaneously.
Use the barrel adjuster to fine-tune the brake pad to the rim contact point and lever feel.
