Machine Tech Cantis?

Matty F - 12/10/12 - 7:12am

The logo is a dead giveaway. Machine Tech cantilever brakes.

Tommy Rodgers - 12/10/12 - 7:17am

Yep. Machine Tech cantis from 1993-1995 or so. Immediately predating v-brakes. Those things were sweet, along with the stems (crazy looking) and brake levers.

@bob – lol, nice.

I think Mr. Archer should have a shop Xmas tree decorated with all of these mystery components. My wife won’t let me do that to ours….

Machine Tech for sure…where is the nice cable hanger?

Campy tire levers.

Machine Tech ZeroFlex brakes. One of the few CNC cantilevers which was quiet, powerful, and reliable.

Those are very pretty brakes and would look good on a CX bike.

Maki - 12/10/12 - 2:33pm

Machine Tech brakes.

WannaBeSTi - 12/10/12 - 2:54pm

Those would look so good on my GT Bravado LE (with Groove Tube)…with it’s Machine Tech hubs.

Danno - 12/10/12 - 3:46pm

[wiping tear] I’m so happy there are still people alive who know the Machine Tech logo. Those were good ol’ days.

1speedbrian - 12/10/12 - 7:40pm

I still ride a machine tech front hub I bought in 93 or so on my back-up cx wheels.

Ben Ulness - 12/11/12 - 12:42am
