Bruce Gordon Cantilever Brakes
At the North American Hand Built Bicycle Show in San Jose, March 2006, we displayed a pair of handmade Titanium Cantilever brakes that we made for a show bike. Many people requested a more affordable canti brake with the same design. My new brakes are polished aluminum that is CNC machined in California.
Price: $169 per wheel or $338 per bike
They feature an enclosed spring and run on a Stainless Sleeve. Spring tension for alignment is externally adjustable. They also have a replaceable bronze bushing to guarantee long life.
Each brake pair comes with a linkwire straddle cable that features a similar design.
Their classic shape compliments traditional lugged frames.
