So the only difference between the front / rear is in the pads, I guess?

Yes. Pads and pad holders. We see what they actually send as in item description they have REAR and picture is of the front.
But Superb either way! :xmas-wink:

They've got some DX stuff for those who prefer something more modern too. Tempting

I looked at those DX v brakes but the listing suggests they are not complete, weirdly.

They started making them in 1997 and they are BMX stuff made as one lever intended for rear use.
Now it gets little confusing as for (don't get me wrong :) ) normal market they have right hand only for rear and there I see left hand levers only. :lol:

Just ordered 2 pairs but rear only.

initially there was only rear available, but for a brief moment There appeared to be one pair of fronts available too!

I shoved them in my basket and then things went pear-shaped, then they suddenly disappeared. :cry:

Oh well, at least i get 2 sets of nice canti's, even if the pads wont work on the front.

Just thinking about this, i guess there's no reason why a decent set of CX canti pads couldnt be used?

Is that correct?
