Strengths:    Hard to adjust

Weaknesses:    Concealed Spring

Bottom Line:   
I got these to replace my old cantilever breaks, and I had a hard time adjusting them to fid my frame. It seemed like the slot was not long enough to get them where I needed them. Once I got them working, they have not given me much trouble.

One trivial complaint: almost every other brand of breaks have the spring on the outside, so to center them quickly you can just bend the spring a little bit. These use a coil spring, so you can only center them by turning the set screw.

PRICE, PrIcE, pRiCe, PricE, priceApart from that, they are quite strong- the alloy used in their production seems to be quite tough.

relatively large mass

Bottom Line:   
Quite a nice brake for a very low price. I was sure it won't work as it should, but, fortunately, i was not right. In comparison with my old Altus cantilevers they are wonderful. But, as all v-brakes, they need proper regulation.
