Subject: [CR]Side Pull Selection and Sun Manxman

Maybe there wasn't much difference in the stopping power of various sidepulls but Campag were so much easier to centre. I can recall putting a screwdriver on the spring and whacking it with a hammer to centre brakes. With the Campag it was a moments work with a cone spanner and best of all it stayed centred. Just got back from a cycle jumble in West Sussex. There was an original Sun Manxman frame complete with headset (beautiful chrome) Bluemels guards, Williams C34 chainset. It had chrome head lugs and fork ends. I thought it was really nice for a mass market "sports bike" but no takers at £175. Ray Green, Brighton
