    Comments about Avid Shorty Ultimate Cantilever Brake:

    These brakes are awesomes! I bough them to replace the stock Tektro on my CAADX which were not able to stop my bike adequately. Now, the Avid Shorty Ultimate can stop my bike in no time. The only difference between front and rear brake were the quick release of the brake cable and the stock configuration (wide or narrow).

    Comments about Avid Shorty Ultimate Cantilever Brake:

    Replacement for stock tektro front brakes that had a very poor carrier design. These improve on every aspect - especially the carrier. Installation is ok in terms of difficulty, instructions are fairly good. They are well designed so maintenance is easy and adjustments shouldn't be needed very often. Going to replace my rear brakes with these as well

    Comments about Avid Shorty Ultimate Cantilever Brake:

    Very cool brakes, they look awesome and work well. There are lots of adjustments that can be made and they have an interesting spring tension set-up which works well. However it takes a bit of time and playing around with it to figure it out and get it working properly. I think I've probably got a little more adjusting to do on mine before they are perfect.
