Looking for Avid Tri Align Brakes?(9 posts)

Looking for Avid Tri Align Brakes?Steve_O

I found these on eBay and believe that the seller doesn't realize that he's actually listed the much beloved (but now discontinued) Avid Tri Align Brakes...

Obviously you want to verify with the seller what they actually are, but they certainly don't look like the Ritchey canti's I remember...

I imagine the seller saw "Ritchey" written on the pads and assumed that they were Ritchey brakes.

I have a set of early '90s Ritchey Logic Cantis and they have no similarities to the brake in the auction. They do however look remarkably like a pair of DiaCompes.

certainly look like a set of Paul CNC spin offs. Weren't the ONZA's very similar as well. Those definitely look like the TriAligns

Is it the cable hanger?

Try D8 over on MTBr's forums. He had some Tri-Dangles for sale recently... They also come up on eBay fairly regularly...

in the above photo it's the piece just up from the cable crimp(to the right of the tri dangle), the piece with the set screw that hooks under the brake arm.
