Best brakes ever???spookyload

This guy is listing the Campy delta brakes on ebay and is claiming they are the finest brakes ever produced. Obviously he never tried to stop a bike with them. His idea for framing them is probably the best idea for delta brakes yet. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=1853743843

Gotta disagree with you spooker, the Delta's would crush a rim WHEN they were properly set up. Most people just didn't do it right, Delta's needed lots of modulation. You had to set them up with lots of clearence between the rim and pads. I still have two pair of them but not on any bikes, the dual pivots are better.
Always wondered why how they didn't get suedspookyload

I had a mountain bike in 1987 that was equipped with Suntour Rollercam brakes. I remember that they had the patent on the design, and when I saw my first set of Delta's, they were an exact copy. Maybe when Suntour abandoned the rollercam brakes, they sold the patent to Campy
