after a full set for a friends BMX to replace the turdy plastic ones he has.
avid or shimano, no pads necessary.

not too fussed on condition or the inclusion of bolts or noodles/cables either....(i have loads of them)

WHY? :D

got some m750 brakes, with m739 levers I could let go, complete. Say £60 posted, or would consider an offer

thanks for the offer - but they seem a bit too good/pricey for this job. i probably should have stated a budget:

i think around £30?
just after the levers and calipers really. or am i being massively unrealistic?

no, I just fitted some Deore (M510?) to a bike I'm going to try and sell complete on Gumtree, may offer it here first. That if I was to split, I'd take £30, and they include pads and noodles.

hmm, thinking about it, I can probably retrofit canti's to the bike. Just need some springs. Do you have any in your spares bin, you could send to me with the £30? and I'll remove them now, and pack them up. Can photo 1st for you too

thanks again, but i think i may have found someone who can offer a full set (levers and calipers) for a good price. if that falls through, i may get back in touch :)

p.s. i'll have a look in my spares box anyway for some springs if you need some. if i have some, i certainly wont need them :)

I've got a set of Avid Speed Dial levers/ V brakes in "past their best but still functional" condition for £15 posted. Can do a pic or two later if there's any interest :)

There you go, I've got mounting bolts too if you want them. Scruffy, pads need replacing and if you look carefully at the 2nd pic, the right lever is a bit bent. I think if you're careful it'll bend back ok :)
