Beautiful Single-Pivot Brake

Another option that I've been looking at in lieu of using center-pull are single-pivot brakes.  I was under the impression that they were no longer made, but I recently discovered this offering by Bontrager.  Too bad they don't come in standard reach.

They're great because the can track out of true/irregular rims and don't have the extra mechanical advantage like double pivot brakes.  I'll write some more about them once I find further examples.
