|I am building up an NOS Bontrager CX 'cross bike. As I often do, I have collected about 4 different options for canti brakes. I have the Radius, Suntour XC-Pro F&R, Suntour XC-Pro front w/ self-energizing rear and Shimano DX. I have read a lot of negative opinions on the Radius, but also quite a few who seem satisfied with them after a pad change. If you are using them and happy, please post how you have them set up (what pads and how high the straddle cable is set). |
P.S. Oh yeah, I did a search on "radius" and read most of it...

|hated them with the stock pads, switched the pads out w/ new ones and now they work like a charm! I keep the straddle carrier adjusted so the straddle cable forms a 90 degree angle running from arm to arm. love' em!

|I used an acute straddle cable angle, closer to 80 degrees. I also changed pads and modified the "hook" which captures the straddle cable end with a file so I could remove the straddle cable more easily for wheel changes. They worked very well.|| |
