I was given a older Claud Butler mtb and the v brakes front and back are stiff, and when I checked to see what was wrong all 4 springs fall short of the hole they're meant to engage, the v brake wont seat any closer and theres a gap where there shouldn't be...am I missing something? its almost as if these arent the brakes meant for this frame? in the first photo you can see the gap between the end of the spring and the hole its meant to reach but doesn't...Id appreciate any advice,thankyou.
