Default Re: Side pull calliper brakes?

V Brakes and cantilever brakes just offer better stopping power getting a mechanical advantage with the different pivot point.

I use the side pull caliper when ever I have to retro fit because like you pointed out they are way easier to install. I may have to squeeze a bit harder to stop but I am a big guy and can handle it.
