- Froggleg Empella cantilevers. Experiences?
I run them ( and rate them) on my CX… Spot on IMHO. Granted, adjustability is limited, but to be fair, coupled with Ultegra STIs I've never had a drama..
Sure, the compared to a set of disks, they are poles apart, but to be fair, they slow me down enough, and I'm no jeyweight..
And for £40 for a full set, you can't go wrong.Posted 7 years ago69erMember
IME 'cross canti's (inc. froglegs) are fookin' scary at race speeds… but that's going quick in the mud and rain. Quite time consuming to set up too. I guess for loaded up touring where braking is a bit less frantic they'd be ok, but don't expect masses of stopping power.Posted 7 years agomcmoonterMember
I'm looking for a set of cantilevers for a touring bike. Keen to hear of folks experiences of these.
I've got a Dave Yates Audax frame, which was built around some early Deore XT cantilever brakes. The bosses are mounted quite close together limiting the type of brakes I can use. Avid Shorty 6s wouldnt fit. I have to use an Open Pro 20mm wide rim to get the Shimanos to work. The Frogglegs look as though they might work in the same way as the early Shimanos.Posted 7 years agomcmoonterMember
I went for the Tektro CR520s in the end. Found a great deal here – £28 posted.
