    My brakes needs some tweaking. On both front and rear the brake without the tiny adjusting screw
    doesn't move enough when I release the brake. Which way do I turn the screw to get more motion
    out of them.

    The other question I have is the cantilever mounts have three holes for the spring to sit in. When
    would I want to use one of the holes other than the middle hole?

  2. Unscrew the little adjusting screw a little.

    If you want a really strong springing back action use the top hole, weak the bottom.
