Hi

Ive picked up some weinmann centre pulls for a new old frame. The pads are fairly wrecked though, so I need to replace them. So the first question is, what do I get? Do standard canti brake pads work with old style centre pulls? or am i after something else?

Second, am I right is saying that standard short pull levers work with centre pulls (you dont need anything like the long pull v brake type things or the like)?

cheers

jon

Greetings Cookiemonster;
Yes standard levers will function properly with your Weinmann's, and any threaded road type brake shoes will fit.
Cheers

My LBS have sorted me out some nice Fibrax brake pads that fit Weinmanns and are period correct; the same manufacturer's pads are fitted as original equipment to my '70's Viscount. And to top it all, they're made in Wrexham. Website: http://www.fibrax.com/p5/About-Us/pages.html
