    Origin8 cantis?

    Anybody ever set these up and/or ridden them. Sweet looking, but I've never fiddled with a set.

    Never used them, but I've heard good things on the CX subforum. They look like Mafac or Frogleg clones; gotta bend the post to adjust toe-in. Also they are wide profile, which may or may not play well with your rear rack in touring applications.
