What kind of brakes are these?
My wife recently bought a used Cannondale T800 touring bike. The bike came with some upgraded components (pedals, headset, and brakes). The bike has some cantilever-like brakes that I am not familiar with,
A high resolution image can be found at the following link,
Can anyone tell me what kind of brake this is and who makes it? I didn't notice any manufacturer's name on the device.
Are these brakes any good? They seem to be fairly durable and well made.
Also, does this type of brake provide some convenient way to adjust the brake cable tension?
My wife's bike is equipped with Shimano brifters (brake/shifters). They don't have any barrel cable tensioners for the brake lines on them so I was wondering if there is a quick way to adjust the brake cable tension with these type of brakes.
Thanks in advance.
