Just don't know what they are, please help.
Are they any good and worth cleaning and putting back together?

Remind me of Critical Racing and Grafton but I don't think they are either.
Sorry, that's of no help at all!

Ah yes they really do look like Fro, but there are some differences with the only picture I could find:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/phattyred/29778107/lightbox/

- mine do not have the recess area around the slot
- mine has a cable bolt on one arm

But the outline is very similar. They look a bit too well made to be a rip-off.

No, not those Fro,s. They kind of look like these FRO, but they are definitely not.

@Orangeone: Do you have a pic of your Tektro's to compare?
