These babies are going onto my next bike which will be a commuter-cum-CX-cum-offroader based on the new Spooky 'Supertouch' frame. It's gonna be quite a mis-matched build and I'm really looking forward to doing it.

Cool!

I can see how the black pair works, but how does the silver pair operate?

The outer cable goes directly into the side of the first canti and the inner cable is held in place in the 2nd canti via a grub screw, thus can use the brake cable 'pointing' either way.

The RH black one looks very similar to the Control Tech cantis - is there a link somewhere between the two companies that I should be ashamed of not knowing...?
