i always likes these and preferred them to the suntour ones made under licence

did flea bay madness get the better of me?

Suntour are much cheaper but a lot heavier .

yep front and rear - brand new and with yokes etc. Yep the original pedersons look way nicer than the suntour - much more grafton-esque IMHO!

Cheers!

you can pick up some suntour for £0.99 some evenings and some original front Pedersen in germany for a bit more .

but yours are the best and much lighter .
