I have a pic of Geoff Rutherford's RRS (It's actually a modified GT.) and it shows the brakes. I can email you the article if you send me your address. I've wanted and RRS ever since I saw that article. The bike is total sickness.

The BBs are easy to use and adjust. The eccentric is meant to help you tighten the chain. Instead of pulling the wheel back, you rotate the BB in the eccentric.

I'm not sure RRS ever sold completes, but maybe. I only know of the frame kits, which had the f/f, BB, brakes. You can probably build it as you like.

The original brake *are* RRS cantilevers. They're shorter than the Dia Compes.

They never sold completes, only framesets.

Talk to Germnest. He has owned genuine RRS cantilevers, and had them on his RRS 24. They do exist.

Re: 1981 RRS Racing

Actually, check this link here: http://bmxsociety.com/topic/36628-old-s … d-earlier/

Blikums 1981 RRS 24 has OG RRS Cantilever brakes. They're stamped "Rear" rather than Dia Compe. They may be modified Dia Compe cantilevers, but if they were, they were modified by RRS, to fit the frames better.

Re: 1981 RRS Racing

Hey gang, This is my bike and I might be willing to part with it.  Had it since brand new.  Kind of fond of her from the racing memories.  What do you all think it is worth?
Thanks so much.
Scott.

how would zip ties help the wheel be stiffer?hmm

They probably wouldn't.  The zip ties were put there by racers bitd in case you popped a spoke during a race.  The zip tie would hold it in place and allow you to finish the race.


Sweet RRS, these frames were so far ahead of their time.  cool
