Hi guys, I just received a new S5 VWD frameset to replace my S3 under warranty. I've been running the EE brakes on the S3, but when I went to install the rear brake, I found that the cable stop on the brake hit the seattube! Anyone else tried this combination successfully? If so, did you have to do anything unusual on set up? FWIW, I'm running a 61cm frame...
Thanks in advance for any help!

Could you run an extra washer between the brake and frame, and possibly a slightly longer brake retaining nut?
