I brake for Paul's Brakes
Great build, super quality. Definitely fits the "jewelry" for you bike category. Amazing stopping power..*** see below
Amazing stopping power. There is so much leverage I had to adjust down the grip so I didn't get lock up or chatter when applying the brake.
Great stopping power, look great made in the U S
Somewhat expensive but worth it
I should have bought these first
They work great and stay adjusted! They work with Campy Super Record brake levers.
I originally bought a different set of brakes for my Waterford touring bike. They would never stay centered and I was always fiddling with them. The Paul brakes work great with road levers and they stay where they're supposed to stay, centered!
easiest to adjust
durable, good-looking, so simple to install and adjust
Installing these brakes is a snap, and adjusting them is so easy, it's not fair. The brakes have an internal spring, that you adjust externally with a 15mm wrench. You set them up and the last thing you do is tension the springs. Also gotta plug for Paul Moons - they're nicer to brake cables than normal straddle cable hokes, and they also simplify brake cable adjustment.
Excellent build quality
Excellent build quality. Good, traditional design. Quite easy to set up and adjust, with simple tools and only basic knowledge of bicycle mechanics.
The Kool-stop salmon pads are not the best for all rim surfaces. I have two bikes with the Paul touring cantilever brakes, and salmon pads. The pads work fine on one bike (with Mavic Open Pro rims), but the pads are not optimum on the other bike (with Fulcrum racing 5's).
