Are cantilevers all the same?
I salvaged a pair of cantilever brakes from a MTB frame with 26" wheels. I'd like to use the brakes on a touring frame with 700c wheels. Will the mounting arm spacing compensate for the different wheel size, or, to put it another way, can I use the same cantilever arms on both frames?
Finally, where is a good source for cantilever hardware (cable hangers WITH adjusters, center thingies for the cross cables, and cantilever cross cables)? Nashbar didn't seem to have much...
