I just picked up a set of Shark Bite brakes off eBay for a song (couldn't help myself :? ), but know nothing about them. Anybody help me out here? This is what was written....

"Very oldschool parts, these were one of the first “long arm linear pullâ€

MRC & Marinovative were doing V brakes very early on as well.

Funnily enough, they were the first v-brakes I bought (and hence the first major upgrade, oh so many pounds ago).

They're now nicely nestled on m'dad's bike, I cold never get them to work right on my Grisley but his Giant seemed to like them. I went the Shameano route.... Slippery slope.
