I've had these kicking around for ages. I bought them when a crash bent the front cantis on my '93ish Spesh, but I then quickly changed to V-brakes so I didn't have them mounted for very long.

They appear to be built on the same principle as Gravity research Pipe Dreams, with the canti arm mounted first, the spring next and then a cap which is tightened onto the end of the brake stud and can be turned to adjust the spring tension. The machining looks quite nice in places, but they've got a few extra after-market holes that have been drilled in them. So, what do you reckon? Anyone recognise them, or are they somebody's A-level metalwork project?
