Rene Herse Angled Brake Washer (Pair)
These washers are easy to retrofit to adjust toe-in. The advantage of the angled washer is that you’ll do it only once, when you initially set up the brakes, and then never worry about it again.
It’s really simple: The washer that goes under the posts of the brake pad has one groove that is deeper than the other. This puts the brake pad at a 2.5° angle, which gives you about 2 mm of toe-in. There is a dot on the reverse (invisible once installed) that shows which groove is deeper. Install the washer in the orientation that you want your toe-in, and you are done. The washer remains in place as you adjust or change the brake pads, so you never have to think about it again. Your toe-in always remains the same.
