Campy centerpulls ?

Quesdtion: Other than the Delta aero brakes, did Campagnolo ever make centerpull wheel brakes?

Looking on Velobase, those monoplaner brakes don't seem to have a very long reach (no numbers attached to the entry). Were they direct mount?

Skip, I'm not sure how reach is part of the question! Weinmann certainly had some pretty short CP calipers available in the 1960s

Correct, but wasn't Euclid a mountain bike group? You need room for taller tires, if nothing else. At least that's my mental picture.

Euclid was mountain bike equipment so these are very similar to Shimano "U-brakes" which were designed to mount on studs under the chainstays. By the time Campy made them available the mountain-bike world had gone back to cantilever brakes front and rear.
