    brake shoe and vertical compliance

    Just for discussion..
    do you think when going over a bump the chain stay flex a finite amount (in theory) and the brake track on the rim actually go up towards the caliper?

    looking from the bottom, I found the brake shoe sitting about 1mm above the brake track and rather close to the the wheel..
    I moved it up a bit.

    Unless the seatstays have a pronounced bow, they would have to compress for the rear triangle to flex up that way.

    So, the answer is "no." Adjust your brakes and don't worry about that.

    I have to say, your mind sure works differently than mine. When you post a question, it most often is quite "interesting."
