Michael mentioning the Jack Taylor on UK ebay (320487377012) has reminded me of the fact that I have the same brakeset that this bicycle features, but have never got around to properly identifying them.
All that I know is that they are Weinmanns, and that they have a solid steel straddle arm instead of a straddle cable. What I'm really curious about is whether this design works - possibly not since it was never copied.
If you look at the ebay listing you will see what I'm talking about - I suppose I should make pictures of these brakes and upload them to wooljersey, I haven't seen them there or anywhere else.
Thanks in advance for any insight, Regards Mark Lawrence Oxford, United Kingdom
