Baring in mind your previous cantibrake set up attempts ie similar to a single piston disc brake, one side pushing the rim into the other pad, do these ones actually work :lol:

Nicely done Gaz :wink:

Velo believe it or not these old type canti's have been the easiest ones to set up by far, there is not an amazing stopping power but that may just be down to the old rubber.
