Hi, awesome bike, really!!!
I have a set of these Paul Cross Stop for one wheel (unfortunately some bits ar missing, rest is NOS) - and I wonder whether they work before I start to arrange the missing parts. Do they work with canti or V-brake levers? Any oppinions about them?
Currently I have Paul Motolite Z that I am pretty happy with, just wanted to have something different :-)

I managed to get the brakes working ok in the end - just a case of fiddling with the setup and cable angles etc.

Is it worth tracking down spares to replace a working set of Pauls? Not sure...

Thanks for reply about brakes, that seems like the same answer I got from Paul Enginnering when I contacted them soon after purchase of my cross-top incomplete set. They replied me that the best way to make them work is to install the Motolite-Z :lol:
Nevertheless, they look cool :lol:
By the way, I got my cross-top for about 5 quid as the seller was not very familiar with "P" sticker and thought It was some taiwanese rubbish.... Shimano sticker would have definitely made it more expensive :lol: :lol:

The crosstop was out of neccessity. The fork steerer was too short to run a cable hanger. It had to be a ringle / king / pauls front end so crosstop it was

thats looking nice :D , certainly the brakes are an improvement over the original alivios that the german & french forums took the pi$$ out of when you first built it up :lol: :D

so I guess you;re on the look out for a larger frame given that this 1s blatently too small for you? with that saddle to stem position change all your need is some tri bars :wink: :lol:
