A little something to go with those Ksyriums. The living return of Mavic components.

Seen these once before, I think. I see they're following in Campy's footsteps on not putting a cable release on the caliper. Not a bad idea until you have to open the caliper for a wobbly wheel -- the release only works until you use the brakes, then you have to reset it.

The release on my Campy doesn't re-engage after I use the brakes (if it's in the open position). What are trying to say?

Maybe just some old knowledge. (nm)brider

Maybe just some old knowledge? I think I've gone from "What?" to "Huh?". Are you saying that older campy brakes would do this? Please, a yes or a no would really help.

Mavic has had those-they match up to their Mektronics which have a release on the brake handles. Works quite well.

I had a friend whose Schwinn Paramount, in 1966, was equipped with Weinman center pull brakes. On the levers, at the top was a red anodized button which when pushed, released the lever, not unlike the more recent Campy Ergo offerings some 30+ years later.
