My HYDRAULIC V-BRAKES have arrived - holy cr@p! And they seem to work! Not 'alf ugly though. Anyone ever had these on a bike?[/b]

Woo. That clears that up then! I don't care how shitely they work (they can't be that bad - think of the leverage) they look proper pre-disc old skoolio. Just wait til I get'em on (months away).
I did a search on these an there's almost nothing out there. I think Wendler is/was a large German bike dealer. Who knows who StarBike are/were! (not really a question - mystery appeal)
