Looking at replacing the Tektro original cantilevers on my Marin, its only an entry level Bolinas Ridge but still deserves some new brakes I think.

Would I be better getting some new ones like the Shimano BR M565 from CRC for less than a tenner or go for some retro Dia Compe 987's. Its been the best part of a decade since I rode a bike with cantilevers in anger :oops: any other budget stoppers to shortlist.

I think I still have a full set of cantis from a mid 90s Pine Mountain in the garage. I think they're in silver and blue and the same shape as the ones in this thread (not the same condition though).

I've got the Axera x cantis that came off my bobcat, should clean up ok, pads ok on one set but need replacing in the other.

They're yours if you want them, just cover postage.

Thanks for the offer, but I have some Marin ones lined up.

If they fall through I will take you up on the generous offer 8)

I also have surplus to requirements '95/'96 Marin cantis in deep blue and silver, and 1 or 2 straddles, if anyone needs them.
Alloy ok - steel has some surface rust so ideal for a WD Pro style restoration.

On a related note also have 1-1/8th Diatech headset spares inc hanger, topcaps, races etc.
