A little Retro XTR Goodness on Singlespeed Cross Bike

I always wanted a set of XTR cantilever brakes when they were 'the thing' in mountainbiking. Unfortunately, I never had the dough for a set.

Fast forward to today, and I managed to pick up 3 wheels worth of XTR's, and 2 of the sets even came with new Ritchey Pads.

The new brakes are super solid and feel great through the levers. I absolutely cannot believe how flexible the cheaper brakes from the same era are.....
