I am sending this again as I did not receive the first message I sent (although it does appear in the archives). I am not sure if anyone got my original message.

I am reassembling a Bianchi Specialissima after doing maintenance and a partial restoration and am having a problem putting the rear brake back together. The bolt which attaches to the yolk which holds the straddle cable is rubbing on the quick release mechanism/hanger when the brake is activated - does that all make sense? Anyway I am wondering if I need a shorter straddle cable.

The brake cable was not attached when I received the bike so I do not know if this problem was extant previous to the bike being shipped to me.

Thank You,
Mike Short,
Austin TX.
