Hi
Can anyone help I have a pair of Rigida cyber 10 rims fitted with disc hubs but I am not sure if they can be used with V brakes as there is nothing on them to say either way see pictures attached
Thanks - David

that sticker has 'safety line' written on it - this would suggest to me that they are for use with V's.
Weinmann rims have the same (at least mine do anyway)

They also have pretty clear flat braking surfaces. I think they look fine for rim braking.
