Got me a set and was interested in their history.

They give me an idea for a 1990's retro mod for a 1980's frameset

Eh up
Never heard of these so googled them for images. Don't look bad and suppose they will do the job. Just get over it man and get back to your cake lol. Avid ultimates look nicer and seem a better option.
But seriously have some more cake! Go on go on go on go on!!! Yes it's early and I've had a few "hic"

I've had a set for some time, although never used them and know nack all about them either. Tried/failed to sell them at Mayhem last year.
The quote 'You're not much use to me alive are you Turkish' springs to mind.

They were a mix of Resilion, Mafac and Hogan. Excellent CX cantilevers, probably good touring ones too

Prefer the Titanium MTB ones though:

These are what the Marin-lite brakes were based on
