      Comments about Problem Solvers Travel Agent:

      I have been unhappy with my canti brakes on my Bianchi Axis since owning it for 6 years. I finally swapped my front brake to linear pull with a travel agent and am extremely happy with the results so far. I ride a lot on all types of terrain (mostly city streets, but also country roads including gravel and occasionally mtb trails) and am fairly abusive to my bike (broken things: handlebars, crank arm, multiple cassettes and chains, chainrings, innumerable brake pads, 3rd set of wheels; wore through the braking surface on the last set, fork, shift lever, multiple cables and housings...) so I am curious to find out how durable the travel agent is. I'm a little concerned about how it will hold up to dirt and grit in the long run, but a fender should help to keep it a bit cleaner.

            Used one of these to adapt the older short-pull levers on a vintage mountain bike to a modern long-pull V brake. Works great!

            Great little device that allows you do dig out your old linear brakes and put them on your CX bike so you can actually stop. The hole between the inner and outer diameter pully is a little tight so you need a good pair of cable cutters to get a very clean, round end.

              I have some bullhorn brake levers that were not compatible with my v-brakes. So, I purchased these little guys to see if they would work. They installed in minutes no problem. My brake levers feel nice and strong now! Great product at a great price!

              A simple solution for my v-brake conversion. Adios center pull brakes! Works great and saves me the trouble and expense of having to buy new brake levers and shifters (since mine are one in the same).

              It works

              By David

              from Fountain Hill, Pa United States

              Comments about Problem Solvers Travel Agent:

              It works. I have plenty of braking force on the front with it, without having to set the pad clearance too tight. My rear brake on this bike (an old Schwinn LeTour tandem) is a u-brake, so using long-travel levers makes the rear brake too weak. It's also nice to have Ergo shifting.
