3rd... most elegant design, but you should build for yourself, not for popularity

hi
the intent of this poll was to impart a bit of knowledge,
not which to use based on popularity.
i'm sure there are numerous individuals out there who like
brodie bikes and weren't aware that there
were several styles of u-brake braces manufactured.
hope someone learned something here. :)
how about a couple more votes gang.
thanks
roy

Third generation for sure, it's really similar to what I did to my Manitou three brace, I had a vision of exactly that style of weight relief:

Missing bolt was replaced!
