    Images of Paul Crosstop I, II, III, and MC brakes?

    Curious if anyone can provide images of all four versions of the Paul's Crosstop brake.

    I cannot help to find them cool. I am currently toying with a set, believe that they are the second model. Set up is a PIA, but modulation is impressive, as is the power. Ugly cool as well.

    Cheers!

    This is not the best pic, but I believe that mine are the 2nd version too. And yes setting them up is a huge PITA.

    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Version 1: images available in Mountain Bike Magazine, I think Aug 94.
    Version 2: circular cutouts, two of them as I recall on the linakge side, and four on the non-linkage side. I think the pics of the brake on the rare brakes site are this version.
    Version 3: as in the photo of the Mantis. Pared-down linkage rocker. Ti bolts.
    MC: This stood for "mo cheaper". No drill-outs, no ti stuff.
    undefined Absolutely must have: Black Machine Tech Zeroflex brake levers (the ones with the rotating leverage adjuster)

    laffeux, do you still want to part with your Paul levers? I would LOVE to work something out.

    Thanx guys. I have no clue what version I have, based upon what I found online and here.

    Details:
    Do not have holes in arms.
    Linkage very similar (if not identical) to pic provided by laffeux.
    Titanium hardware.

    They are DEFINITELY Paul's.

    I will try to pull together pix after work.

    If I did that I'd not be able to stop.
