Shimano only seem to make Deore level v brakes now, and I don't fancy shelling out for Paul ones. I'd ideally like some XTs, or something of comparable quality and snazziness from another brand, ideally in silver.
Anyone got anything?

I've got a set of dia-compe parallel push brakes in silver, similar in design to xt/xtr. I think they may even be called 739 iirc.

I've got a few other brakes, some avids sd9 I think (matching levers), some paul copies which look exactly the same (new in packet) and some onza hola v brakes.

Not sure I want to sell the onza brakes as they are handy with frames where the cable run isn't ideal as you can swap the cable clamp over, but never say never.

XT V brakes in silver: https://www.tritoncycles.co.uk/componen ... OoQAvD_BwE

Just do a Google shopping search for a matching front set.

Or buy 2 as the only thing different, if anything will be the length of the bolts or noodle.
