Title: SF1 rear brake spring
Post by: harpmeister on November 09, 2019, 16:27
Hi, following surgery and a long recuperation period I am now in the position to carry on renovating my SF1 unfortunately for me one of my first jobs will be to fit a new rear brake return spring, that is the one that is on the rear brake lever and brake arm I have given it a half hearted attempt all to no avail so does anyone have any  suggestions on how to fit one.

All sensible advice gratefully accepted

Thanks in advance

Joe

I Did it recently without problem.
Rear wheel out of course.

Vice Grips are your friend when fitting springs of any kind. I do recall having difficulty when refitting mine decades ago - have had a rear disc since about 1979.
