Cantilever Brake Set Modified.

165.00

These are the great Tektro 720 Cantilever brakes, but in bright silver instead of the dull grey/silver or black finish commonly seen and available. I then polish off the logos, remove the black brake pad holders and replace them with Kool Stop bright silver Cross holders with windows and pads. I also polish off the logos off the Kool Stops.

They come with the great silver straddle hangers and cables too.

These take road brake shoes, but have the ball bearing hardware that lets you easily adjust the brake pads height and toe in. These brakes have the most adjust-ability and versatility out there. The pads can slide up and down, in the brakes. The ball bearing hardware lets you toe in or reverse toe in the pads. They have spring tension screws and the straddles have pinch bolts that let you center the brakes. And they have real brass bushing too!

The bad holders are designed to easily swap out the pads without messing with your brake adjustment, and will fit any road pad inserts. They have small set screws keeping the pads in place. The set screws just need to be loosened then you can slide the pads out and slide fresh ones in without removing or loosening the holders in the brakes. Because of this it’s important to made sure the brake shoes are positioned forward correctly.

These brakes have a lot of adjust-ability are are made for modern wider canti boss spacing and will not fit well on many vintage frames with narrow canti boss spacing.

If we could find a better brake we would! That’s the best thing i can say about them.

Again what you get:

All four, (one whole bikes worth), of Tektro 720 cantilever brakes with the logos polished off. All four Kool stop cross pads with holders with the logos polished off. All four brake mounting bolts and a pair of bright silver straddle cable hangers and the straddle cables.
