I've just got some Shimano DX V brakes and levers from Giom6 on here. Now they didn't come with the rubbers or Pipes. I'm currently doing up a 95 Marin Eldrige grade. Does any one know what angle noodles I need for front and rear?

One of each version.
The front is 90 degrees and the rear 135(?) from memory!

I alway put a 135 on the front as it makes for easier cabling for the RH/front lever and a 90 on the back

135 to 110 on the front and then bend till you get the best angle, seating in the v-brake.
Similar for the rear, it all depends on the route of the cable to it. Could be any of them.
Think of it as an extension of the cable.

There is no right generic answer.
