My favorite v-brakes were Precision Billet. Flawless! Unfortunately, they were always hard to find and only rarely show up on ebay.

[quote="retrobikeguy"]Apparently Mrazek took the design on, and they might be easier to find as they still make bikes :idea:

all I can find -

I've got both Mrazek and Marinovative, and I can say they're way better than xtr's as far as stopping power is concerned. A bit brisk, if you are not used to them, tho.
Here they are, mounted on my hardtail http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewto ... c&start=30

this also is an early example of v-brakes.
they work and look like v-brakes but the
term was not invented yet...
so controltech just called them:
controltech side pull cantilevers for long throw brakelevers

Another vote for the Pauls here, easy to set up (even for me!) and pretty well made, I tend to prefer the MC verson without the drilling and once the Dia-Compe pads are swapped for Kool Stops or Aztecs they stop well too :D

Not quite canti but they are top notch rim brake - Maguras plus don't have the problems of cables/spring setting up :)
