Back in the day all my buddies had an RD 350. I had a Kawasaki S2 350 triple, also a 2 stroke. We made a lot of smoke and noise on those bikes.

Cantis are so easy to adjust and set up. I've been running them since the seventies with no problem. I prefer them to most rim brakes.

Mini V-Brake Levers

Has anyone used standard V-brake levers with mini-V's? TRP has a 90 mm mini-V that is close to standard size. Just wondering if you could use a standard lever or not.
