I dont think anyone really would ride their Graftons on a daily rider anyway. Its like using your Aston DB5 as your daily driver... :)

they are very good indeed .

to use at the back only , or are they front specific .
very heavy , the Pedersen version is much lighter .

SJS have a lot of them in stock , but they charge stupid postage amounts .

Mine are rear specific. They say Pedersen on them I think, though I do remember thinking they weigh a fair bit!

Got mine for £1.04 plus £3.50 postage - not too bad I thought.

I think Pedersen invented the process , and suntour bought it or made brakes with Pedersen .

the pedersen have drilled arms . somebody on here got some not so long ago .

Mine aren't drilled so perhaps it's just a name-check!
