Up for sale are these beautiful, hard to find, brand new in box badass Paul Neo-Retro Cantilever brakes in polished silver. TWO sets are available at $175 per set. Each set is good for one wheel, and they work interchangeably on the front and rear. They come with straddle cable, cable carrier, and KoolStop brake pads.
These are hands down the best cantis on the planet, and the polished version will sparkle and make your beloved bike fresh all over again or will take your new bike to a whole other level.
I prefer to sell BOTH sets at once, but will consider splitting them. This is a chance to get these rare brakes AND have immediate gratification. (Paul Components is backlogged at least 8-10 weeks.) I’m clearing out my parts bin. I’ve hoarded way too many parts for awesome projects I’ve dreamed up and didn’t pan out. My loss truly is your gain. You avoid tax and exorbitant shipping.
Cash or Apple Pay please. Pickup at agreed upon time and place in the Dupont Circle area. If the ad is up, they’re available. (I will entertain shipping but we have to discuss it first.)
In addition to my photos of the actual brakes for sale,, I included some official pics from the Paul website that also show how badass these brakes are. Here’s what Paul has to say about these brakes:
The Neo-Retro is a wide-profile cantilever brake with a design based on the geometry of the famous Mafac Tandem brake. Where the Neo-Retro differs from its classic heritage is in its modern materials and adjustability.
The arms of the Neo-Retro are machined from lightweight 6061 aluminum. Their T-shaped cross section prevents the brake from flexing too much under load.
The brake pads mount to slots in the arms that allow for vertical positioning. The toe-in and angle can be fine-tuned thanks to the spherical washers on the brake pad threaded posts.
The long arms give the Neo-Retro lots of mechanical advantage and supreme mud clearance. However, for smaller frames and those with panniers, we will often recommend our narrower Touring Canti brake.
Like all of our brakes, the Neo-Retro has a sealed pivot mechanism. Rubber seals and a stainless steel bushing keep the brake arms turning smoothly no matter what you’re riding through. The spring tension can be adjusted in both pivots to center the brake and to adjust the strength of the return swing.
The Neo-Retro stands out with its stopping power, high adjustability, low easy maintenance, and classic looks. The brakes come with their pivots pre-greased and with all necessary hardware.
