I was planning to put XTR V-brakes on the Lloyd build but the Canti hanger on the frame and the Noodle/Lever/thing on the RC35's have persuaded me to look into using Canti's. :oops:

So... I'm looking for a nice Canti set to fit on this lovely frame. Front, rear and levers are needed since I sold/binned all my canti's years ago :lol:

Tempt me with your Canti lovelyness please :shock:

Thanks Chris, I used to have a set of XT servowave levers which I did that to - I think they are still in the bigboxofbrokenbikebits and the pivots are trolly'd :cry:

Looking for something nicer.

I'm watching those but suspect it will go mental on the last day.

They would be fine though 8)
