Hey, so, does anyone have any experience using modern road brake pads with a mid 70's center pull brake mechanism? is there a reason this will go awry? if so, would someone(doug) like to explain why i am an idiot? cool. thanks.
It should work just fine, are you having an issue with them not fitting properly?
In some cases more modern pads, like the cartridge style ones, are to narrow to hit the rim properly depending on the brake and the width of the rim.
no, i just thought i remembered there being a reason not to do that. cool. thanks.
There could be, but there is not one that I know of.
I use these: Yokozuna Brakes on mid-seventies Weinmann centerpulls and they work beautifully.
