  1. 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.

  2. 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….

What do you think?
