These highly adjustable Tektro cantilever brake sets are ideal for a 650B conversion on a 26″ frame or purely as a good value for money way of adding a splash of colour to your retro MTB. Available in four colours and sold in full sets of brakes for front and rear including legendary Kool Stop pads.
Due to the Avid Tri-Align esque design the brake arms have a huge amount of vertical adjustment meaning they will work on many frames and forks designed for 26″ wheels if you also wish to run 650B rims.
The pad holder slides up and down over the cylindrical arm offering 30 mm of movement. The difference in height between a 650B rim and a 26″ rim is 12.5 mm (584 mm minus 559 mm, divided by two) so these can in a number of cases be set up to work with the larger rim size. The maximum pad centre height is 48 mm from the centre of the brake bolt, they also offer a lowest pad height of 18 mm which can be useful for some bikes designed around 27″ wheels. All in all probably the most adjustable cantilever brake set available at this price!
