Some of us regard it as a safety feature - lets people know you are coming. A chance to scare the hell out of those annoying joggers blocking the bike path in front of you.

Mafac brakes! Were they a mistake or did they do it to us on purpose!!!!

I'm having problems keeping the post on my Mafac (comps) brake pads from slipping when braking. One hard brake too many and they compress giving less than optional braking. (Imagine squeeling like a little girl and going to the Flintstone's) Yes, I tightened the bolts.

Any helpful hints out there in CR land?
