Great quality v-brake

PostedJune 22, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Used these to replace cheapo brakes on my old mountain bike and very pleased with the results. There are lighter brakes, there are more powerful brakes. But given that they are lighter than pretty much any disc set-up and I can still lock the wheels, how much power do I need?
I don't do downhill (Too old, too untalented) so these are great.
Easy to fit and set up. look good
A happy bunny!

Brakes do their job fantastic! This morning wet ride on 2C with melting snow/rain, and they work as it is dry.

Good product, well made, high spec

PostedSeptember 10, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great, very smooth to use and delivers good leverage
Good set of breaks, I replaced my lower spec V-brakes for these ones and they are much better. However one thing i would say againts them is that the spring is a little too short, this means when the break blocks wear down there is a chance the spring will be too short to reach the pin at the top of the break arm.
