That’s a Cane Creek Direct Curve brake

Cane Creek Direct Cure V-Brakes. The selling point was that there was no noodle needed for theses brakes.

Canes creeks…stopping power of a wet lizard but looked nice….throw a brake booster on there and use some xtr levers and you might get some modulation! Great looking though

Cane Creek Direct Curve 5 Vee’s. Yes… I knew that before I saw the above comments 😉 Someone needs to get on the mystery pic Cinneli Spinnaci style.

Definitely Cane Creek direct curve. Rode a bike with ’em several weeks ago, stopping seemed fine on pavement.

is it still a mystery if it is in the company’s current lineup and website?

Crane Creek Direct curve. I think it’s from about 2000-2002 maybe.
