After we put our Neo Retros out on the market, the phone lines immediately lit up with calls for a bag/rack/calf friendly version. This is it; the PAUL Touring Canti.
The Touring Canti has all the same adjustment capability and pivot system as the Neo Retro, but the arms angle up and out of the way of most everything. The brake is about10% less powerful than the Neo Retro, but that turns out to be a good thing. On many bikes the Neo Retro overpowers the seat stays, bending and twisting them instead of squeezing the rim. For a really nice set-up, try a PAUL-canti-combo: a Touring Canti in the rear, and a Neo Retro up front.
Straddle wire and hanger are included. Pivots are pre-greased too. Run a lower straddle wire with this brake, about 1" above the tire.Material: 6061 Aluminum
