Seriously, they were my favourite V brake. I threw my set in the bin....after 12 years, 8 bikes and goodness knows how many re-builds. Well done mate, good find!

I'm not surprised you're happy. Don't normally like Vs myself but in this case I'll make an exception. Nice buy.

Ahhh, the Spikes and the Wildgripper Muds - those were the days! I remember it took me ca. 2 hours to put them on some Sun Rhyno Lite rims at a Dual race we had in 2001. How much were they?

Cheers,
Mx
