Having a hard time getting a 2007 Record Titanium rear brake to behave. I've tried several different length external housing. The problem is the lever doesn't snap back all the way. I can manually move the lever back to the start position; it doesn't go all the way back on its own and the brake doesn't open all the way until I manually bring the lever back to the normal starting position. I confirmed there is no binding; both internal and external cabling is new. The brakes seems to work freely without a cable attached. It sure looks like it's a problem with the length of the rear external cable length. But I've measured and cut lots of rear brake cable housings and never had it this bad before. Comments, suggestions?

info...

Unless the large spring that opens the calipers is defective, you must have binding somewhere. Campy rear brakes are not sensitive to cable housing length.

I'm thinking along those same lines. I have one of these brakes on the rear of my TT bike. I'm going to swap it out and compare the two. Thanks for confirmation.
