I am considering putting the ControlTech V's on my Yo, but I am wondering what vintage they are.

I don't know what vintage the Control Techs are, but Melvin what have you done with the lovely Brooks from your Yo - looked much better I thought!

Ed,

I need many cms behind the bracket. The shape of the Brooks forced me to sit too much forward. Hurt my knees and no optimal power transfer.

I searched on MTBR for a review of the brakes. Oldest I found was '97, so I am fine with the age for this Yo.
