Found these control tech canti brakes in the loft. They still have the original kool-stop pads, i still haven't got a project to fit them on. I remember getting them and used them for a month. V brakes came out so their days were numbered. i might sell in the near future.
does anyone know how common these brakes are???

cheers kirbdug :D

they don't come up too often but not too rare either, a few sets were shipped out by sidekick a while back. I've got some on my stumpy, gave them a bit of polish. Nice to set up too imo.

There seem to be two types; a forged version with a bit of machining, and a nicer, fully machined one. You've got the nicer CNC'd one. :D
They sometimes turn up in black also.

Just be careful with em mate. Because the 'hanger' is also the spring, it takes some stress. Mine have been ok, but the ex-missus got through a few and I doubt you'd find replacements very easily these days.
