    FSA cantilever brakes

    anyone have any experience with them? i just stumbled scross them on cyclocrossworld.

    they sound killer. i like how adjustable they are. they almost have me interested in trying them out against my tried and true xt canti's.

    hmmm.

    They look good but I don't see why they are 4 times the price of tektro 720's. The only advantage I see is the barrel adjuster which is nice when you swap wheel sets often.

    i believe that price is for a pair of front and rear. other sites list them as a full bike's worth for around 86ish. the barrel adjuster caught my eye, but looking at pictures closer make me wonder if you can even quick release the straddle cable.

    you're right though; 720's are way cheaper. i sort of forgot about them. they're just as adjustable too. duh, chris. ha! re-adjusting my rear brake the other day made me consider a spherical washered pad brake again...

    Just a heads up, those barrel adjusters won't work with the 720's. They are designed for the TRP style of canti's. trust me I bought them and they are now sitting in my parts bin.
