Odyssey brake straddle rod help

Anyone ever use one of the Odyssey adjustable brake straddle rods? I was looking to get a set but I can't find out whether there is enough adjustment to use with old style wide cantis. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Actually from the look of it I wouldn't be so sure it'll work with old-style wide cantis (like the Paul Neo-Retro). I don't have any experience since BMX bikes NEVER came with those kinds of brakes, but I'm cautioning you because racersk66 typically has no idea what he's talking about.

I would've preferred Gillian Anderson in a bikini. But Duchovny will do, I suppose.

I think the closest I have is David Bowie with a codpiece.

We don't know, because this is kind of the wrong forum. BMX bikes don't have cantis. The handful that did Back In The Day weren't the ones you're talking about, they were the narrow style found on cross bikes and touring bikes today. If the straddle rods were designed for BMX bikes (if they're made by Odyssey then they probably are), I very much doubt they will work with wide cantis.
