Off-road relic, but June 1, 2019
Reviewer: Dan W from Longmont, CO United States  
Novel early-1980s MTB brake, licensed by Suntour from its designer, mountain bike pioneer Charlie Cunningham. They work about as well as any brake from that era, but you will need a frame that's designed for them, as the brake posts on a Rollercam-equipped frame are mounted higher than they would be on a frame designed for cantilevers.

It's hard to tell from the photo whether these particular brakes are equipped with plastic rollers or the later brass rollers which Suntour introduced as a recall/replacement item after numerous failures of the plastic units. For those in need of brass rollers, they're readily available on Ebay as of mid-2019. *BC edit: they are the brass rollers.*

Adjustment and maintenance of Rollercam brakes is a bit more complicated than with cantilevers, but well within the ability of a reasonably skilled home mechanic. Sheldon Brown's website includes several excellent tips for Rollercam care and feeding: https://www.sheldonbrown.com/canti-rollercam.html
