Product Description

The cantilever brake of choice for most 'crossers, the Avid Shorty 6 Cyclocross Brakes are built to work with any road levers. The center mounted pad holders offer easy pad setup, and if you routinely switch between aluminum training and carbon race-day wheels, the pad holders allow quick removal and insertion of standard road-type brake pads to suit. Avid's Shorty 6 Cyclocross Brakes offer easy canti- arm adjustability with a stiff spring and limit screws on each side. The standard 70mm pads will give you tons of stopping power. They come as separate sets for front and rear. You'll have to order one set for each wheel to outfit your bike.

I have a fuji cross pro cyclocross bike, the OEM brake was this brake but had to be replaced at a bike shop. He used an Onyx brake but the pad adjustment on that one went bad with a stripped screw. I now realize the avid shorty six is superior. very satisfied

Good brakes, comes with plenty of extra parts, and works smoothly and great for about 3 months. However, after 3 months (in my case, ~700 miles) the rod that is used as a spring to pull the pads away from the rim stops holding it's shape, leaving you with brakes that rub. Many different configurations tried, but nothing relieves this issue other than outright replacement.

If they put in a more durable piece of metal as that spring I'd buy these again. Until then, I've gone back to a name brand.

I got these because I was experiencing fork judder with the carbon fork on my cross bike. I had tried switching pads and toeing in without getting any results. When I installed these they fixed the problem and as a bonus they have much better stopping power with less force on the brake levers. They are expensive, but if you're looking for a great pair of brakes these will not disappoint!
