View Full Version : Cantilever Bosses

Today I tried to remove my front v-brakes to clean them because one side wasn't returning despite attempts to adjust and lube it. One side removed just fine, but the other gave me trouble. The bolt was hard to turn and the brake arm wouldn't come loose. At one point the brass bushing slipped off the brake arm and got stuck on the cantilever boss. Is it possible that the boss is bent, or should I look for some other culprit? The brakes have been off before for cleaning with no problems.
