its not a shrakfin, its an arm that goes from the brake pivot (v brake/canti)
and then to the hub/caliper

pricey though

Looks identical to the specialized sharkfin, the braketherapy one is a long bar with caliper mount made from CNCd alloy

Sharkfin

I prefer the A2Z adapter, its lighter and looks cleaner on the frame, doesnt move and just does the job great :wink:

same principal in both but the brake therapy one is a fair bit more complex than the single piece sharkfin.
