These would have to be curved or flexible being that the back side of the holder is curved for angle adjustment. Now, my question(s) is(are) how much travel before rim contact is needed to achieve said mechanical advantage? I set mine like i would a "normal" brake with minimal clearance. Should I adjust them out to take advantage of this I wonder? Could this be the root of people thinking they lack braking power?

Edit - should have checked the link!
