Location: Completely in the dark, thanks to me good mate Terry....
Having finally acquired a proper touring bike frameset after umpteen months of searching, although most of the bits from my old winter/commuting/touring bike will swap onto the new frame, I will be using canti brakes rather than calipers so am on the hunt for some that will work OK with Campag Ergo levers; early "wide-profile" MTB ones would fit the bill nicely, seeing as I already use a set of Shimano Deore MT62s on my cross bike, and they seem to be fine. Not looking for anything too fancy as long as the condition is OK, they work, and are mostly complete (but brake blocks & straddle wires/yokes can always be sourced off eBay if needs be).

Thanks in advance for any help offered - replies via forum or PM equally welcome.

UPDATE: Now sorted and a brakeset is on its way - many thanks to LGF! :)

I have a full set of very modern Trek sourced frogleg style for postage - they were given to me but have sat unused so I bet as soon as they go, they'll be needed.

Just about any canti on earth will do but the wide profile ones are the best as you say.
