Anybody have any experience with the Odyssey Springfield or Fly Springhanger brakes?

How can you have turned that down? The fact it\'s a male is irrelevant.

Spring fields work great, not as snappy and powerful as a traditional spring system though. I'd recommend them.

yeah its got to be, but the fact that you never can be sure with an opinionated christian on the internet is worrying

Bought a springhanger, the cable hanger bit split when clamping the cable in. Got a replacement but haven't fitted it.. I've been told by others it works amazingly, but I am yet to be convinced.

Springfield brake is pretty much spot on, install and forget kind of part. Also brake clearance is really really good, least 1/2 inch running 25/9 gearing.
Lovin' is what i got.

I like the springfields although I haven't had them long. I'm not mad on the squeeky ghost pads though. I would like to try pitbull brake pads with them.

People like snappy brakes, but the truth is that the snappier they are, the more you have to fight the spring when you pull the lever. I've 1/2 brakes for all but 2 of all the years I've ridden and I set the tension as low as possible for this very reason

I prefer snappy brakes. If I dont have to use some force when braking it feels weird...

I prefer the Fly brakes over the Odyssey because of the spring size. I broke the Odyssey spring quite a bit since it's pretty small. There's another thread about this too...

Perhaps ought to mention that they pay you... you know just for the sake of transparency... I dont want to be a dick about it or anything but you haven't posted in months then post three (out of four) comments plugging Fly's products..

I have original Fly brakes from years ago and on my previous frame (from around 2008) they fit perfectly. On my current frame which happens to have more tire clearance like the majority of modern frames I am forced to put a bunch of extra spacers between the pad and the brake arm just to get them to work, otherwise the arms will rub against each other.

Has the geometry of brakes stayed the same or has it changed to accommodate clearance for larger tires?
