Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best upgrade ever Great stopping power. Ordered one for the back of my trusty Kona jake after already upgrading with much more expensive cantis. There is a fair bit of fresh air in lever then solid braking. a little skid prone at the beginning but you get used to them. No squeal or judder like Cantis. I use kool stops with them. Very easy to install and can still run 28s + mud guards. They are now better than ultegra calipers on my "good" bike. You might need different shape noodle than one provided. They use less cable than Cantis so you can trim cable just above where it was attached to canti. 10 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Saw noodle or put inline adjustment for drop bar use. I put these on my CX bike as my Cantis (like many others) shuddered like a Mo Fo. I thought for the price I can try them and if they work even a bit better I can upgrade to a better set of mini v. Well there is no need to upgrade, these things will do just great! Very surprised at how well they work for $20 To be able to easily remove front wheel to change tire you'll need to modify (cut) the bottom end of the noodle as others have mentioned or install an inline adjustment. 03 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect These fit my wifes commuter perfectly. Just as powerful and less ugly than the standard version. Only for 'skinny' bikes though - probably a bit small for anything with fat tyres. 10 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great touring brakeset I use these on a tourer / long-distance commuter on a 'cross frame. Super easy to setup like a full vee brake, fine braking power and feel, but smaller for less weight. So much nicer than the avid cantis they replaced. 09 June 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by above decent brakes I was looking for some CX brakes for my new commuter (Cotic RoadRat)when I found these badboys. After some tunning of the spring pin it fitted perfect. Pretty lightweight and yet super stiff and not flexy/bendy when pulling the brakehandle(Deore M590). The fitting bolts are aprox. 50mm with loctite(no good - go with grease instead). the brakepads bite the rims(WH-R500) very well and stops you instantly. 16 April 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by A bit of modification for cross use I bought some for to use on my Uncle John cross bike. They work well, but as the pad clearance is so tight with the SRAM levers it's impossible to undo the noodle to release the brakes to change the wheel. The fix is to hacksaw the noodle down to about 2mm so that it;s easier to release - it works a treat. Also, the pads are rubbish. After a couple of rides I was convinced the pads had worm out, but they were just brittle and unresponsive. I've now put some Koolstop pads on and the brakes are excellent, well happy. It sounds like a faff, but from what I've read, less than Canti's. They now feel as good as my normal SRAM road brakes. 17 February 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by from cantilevers to mini-Vs I had tektro oryx low profile cantilevers on my touring bike and I just couldn't get enough power out of them, so I started reading all about cantilevers (a LOT of people are complaining about oryx brakes). My conclusion was that it would be very difficult to obtain the same mechanical advantage you can get with these mini-V's with cantis. So I got these, the only disadvantages are 1. Less mud clearance (not an issue for me) and 2. Less room for mudguards (I had to make some modifications to mine). After using them on both wet and dry rides now I can safely say that they perform far better than my cantilevers (which nearly killed me in the rain) and better than any caliper I have tried. I was most impressed with just how little difference rain made to there performance. To conclude, if you commute or travel mainly on the road these are the brakes for you. 06 February 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Food break power Food price Excellent brakes for price. Having come from a set of cantis, these are a massive improvement in braking power. The brake pipe that is included is 90°, which is good for left lever / front brake. If you run right lever / front brake and want smooth cable routing you need to order 130° pipes separately. 06 November 2012

Tire size

Will these accommodate a 35c cyclocross tire? I need a mini V to alleviate the canti brake shudder and I think this is all you carry. Thank you

Answer: 
It depends on how the caliper bosses are mounted in relation to the wheel and how wide the rim is; however most 35c tyres will be fine.

How is arm length measured?

I see that the arm length is 80mm. Is that bolt to bolt or the total length of the arm end to end?

The brake is sold as a single. If you need a front and rear brakes you will need to purchase two brakes. The brake is suitable for both ends of the bike.

I'm looking to replace the cantilever brakes on my old Specialized Tricross. Would these brakes be suitable and would the noodle have to be adjusted?

Answers

Answer: 
Yes they'll work. Do one of the 2 things below.
1. Have an inline barrel adjuster.
2. Modify (cut) the noodle piece that inserts into the brake assembly so it releases with less movement.

I put an inline adjustment in mine that I've never needed to use to remove the wheel so your mileage may vary
