steal is reel
from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA United States
There's a reason they feel crisp. Eyeballing it, it looks like they offer a mechanical advantage of about 3:5. That's low. They will modulate great, but you will really have to squeeze for a full stop...

Great Budget Brakes
March 29, 2012
from Pittsburgh, PA
I found the installation straight forward with Tektro drop bar brake levers. They are a modern design but have a subtle satin finish. The included bridge wire has a tab that makes unhooking the canti's easier.
The only item holding these brakes from a 5 star rating are the included pads. They are fine for light loads and level travel, but hauling down from speed on steep hills isn't confidence-building.
