I printed and followed the directions posted in another thread to adjust my new Signal's brakes.
http://www.global-flat.com/smf/index.php?topic=13890.msg135684#msg135684

I am happy with the results.

As long as I was loosing the springs, I removed the brakes completely and greased each post.  There was some grease already on them, though one was a bit dry.

I was surprised at very little the springs needed to be turned.  I must have only rotated them 45 degrees, maybe even less.

I think I'll use what I learned here to fix the u-brakes on my son's bike.

good on you for using whats already on the website as a resource.

Matt-bmx.com has a really good tutorial on setting up a front brake.

The Opsis isn't avaiable anywhere yet.  The Signal is.  The Opsis has several upgrades over the Signal.   The only thing some might consider a downgrade is from chrome wheels to black wheels.

I agree.  There are even a thing or two I like better on the older Signals.  Myself, I prefer the chrome rims.  If you sat around and waited for the latest/greatest for every purchase, you'd never buy anything.

My friend got an opsis for christmas.  Its a smaller frame i think,  and the cranks are much,  much nicer than the one piece cranks on my signal.  Which will be replaced anyhow...

OKAY
Quick question which is pretty much Opsis related.
It has a 19" toptube, and that is pretty smallll
im 5'10", still growing, and thinking about ordering the opsis, is it too small?
sorry, just didnt want to make a new thread for this Q.
