It's a Hercules I like it a lot too.

A lot of my elderly bicycles have rod brakes and I've never had any problems with them. The trick is in knowing how to set them up properly. I don't know how often I've read comments about rod brakes being no good, but most of the problem lies in folk not bothering to maintain them properly.

Tut tut Deacon, you mustn't go trying to put naughty thoughts in my head
