Please can someone explain what is the correct position for the eyebolt that contols the slack position of the adjustable band clamping rod on these brakes. It can be adjusted about 1" vertically. I can get them to work brilliantly in reverse, but going forwards they require heavy pedal pressure and I am suspicious this is due to incorrect adjustment. Any advice would be much appreciated. Thank you.
Nigel Hugo.

Nigel, if you would post pictures of your brakes it would be much easier for folks on the board to trouble-shoot your issue. Just make sure you size the photos down to 192K.

"Work brilliantly in reverse" isn't a common phrase used with Rocky Mountain brakes

If it's a set of original type RM that has the the anchor point in the back, then yes they should work in reverse.

I have genuine original Rocky Mountain brakes on all of my T's, and I have mine set at the bottom of the slot. I also have a flat washer between the eye bolt and the spring.

I just got an email from Nigel, and it appears he has the first design reproduction Rockies.
