Wtd: V brakes and flat bar levers

Post by Dr Nick » Tue Jul 17, 2018 11:46 am

I'm rebuilding an old alloy framed Dahon Vitesse 7 speed folder, that I rescued from someone about to dump it at the local tip, to be the canal boat bike Did I mention we've bought a canal boat?! :grin: :-bd There is talk of paining it to match the boat as I'm sad like that. :oops:

I'm after some V brakes (front and rear) and a pair of flat bar levers, so was wondering what people had.

Nice-ish quality would be nice.
Don't mind what colour.

Cheers all.

Would 2006 XT Vees and levers work for you? Would give me an excuse to start stripping my old Cadex. PM me if interested.

[Edit: took a closer look...M740 levers and M760 brakes]

Pretty sure I've a set sat in a bag that came off my old trials bike if you want them. Nothing fancy, some Tektro ones. Yours for postage.

thanks all for the offers.

The XT ones appeal most - I'm so shallow! :roll:

But the Tektros would be good for daughter's pub bike :grin: so Greg and Scattamah have PM'd you both.

Lazarus - boat related pm may well follow in the near future! :-bd

cheers
