The Odyssey Springfield brake is the easiest bake to install and adjust. A 5mm allen key is all you need. The unique thing about this brake is that there is only one centre pull spring that connects the two arms. Just tighten down the brake bolts, connect your cables and your done.

Rated 4 out of 5 by anon1234567 Amazing value
Great design, so easy to install.
For me it's perfect as I just hack about - so couldn't vouch for it's strength after a couple of slams. Looks strong though.
Either way, for less than 20ER it's a total bargain.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous i got this brake for my fit WI-FI frame for riding dirt and big parks, the first spring broke within 2 days and the second lasted about a month with constant use. it doesnt like tyre stalls, hard braking or sudden stops so it is pretty much useless. do not buy this.
