Rated 5 out of 5 by Alexandr Хороший, довольно сильный тормоз
До него был Shimano 105, но когда у него стерлась колодка, а новая и стоила дорого,и проблематично достать, я решил купить кантеливер под стандартную колодку.
Cane Creek не разочаровал. Во-первых, силой торможения, а во-вторых, возможностью легко подобрать сменную колодку, если будет необходимо.
Смотрится тормоз стильно, монтируется очень легко. С родными колодками вполне успешно тормозит в весьма грязных условиях.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous well, it's american?
first thing I did upon getting it was complete disassemble and wax with Super web grease and Super slick, very thoroughly, so i can't tell my experience with out of box product. reassemble was a trifle, and fitting to bike was quite enjoyable if not funny, mind that I had to adjust it asymmetrically for the setup of mine.
Braking is powerful, much dirt blocks the backaction slightly - I'd suggest more popwerful springs, but overall it's not a bad compared to the original brakes that were on the bike. pads work in rain and water/oils/mud w/o fails up to moment. What I can't feel just enough is braking modulation, I sometimes seem like they work "stop - no stop", but then again I guess i could adjust that with proper cabling (I think my rear cable housing's too short for them to work correctly at moment). Giving 4 for reason that cool look does not completely count for the price - I got mine for 26.80pounds and that was better)
