Dual pivot brakes are "regular" brakes that attach to the center hole in the fork and center hole in the brake bridge for the rear wheel.

Cantilever brakes need special bosses on each fork blade and each seat stay.

Do an image search and it should be pretty clear. is another good resource.
Bikes: Old steel race bikes, old Cannondale race bikes, less old Cannondale race bike, crappy old mtn bike.
