For the last, many years, my Hubby has been riding canti brakes with v brake levers on a 92 frame that were slightly loose on braking, the levers had to do more work to get the caniti's to work, but then they were wearing out a bit by the end
Today he got his bike back for road use, yeah no more car for him it's for me occasionally, it has very modern LX brake levers/ gear combo for V brakes, yet canti brakes
The braking is smooth and faultless and the pull is better than I've had on proper canti lever/brake combo. The brake levers are superb and the braking is also, so why given all the reasons why it shouldn't work, It does so well?
Please mods put this where appropriate as it mixes with retro and modern I'm not sure
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close
Sneaking in components behind hubbies back Shhhh!!!
