I took these of my bike in the mid to late 90's and they have been in bike draw ever since. Which seems a real waste :oops:

I need to clean them up a bit but wondered if anyone could identify them. I can't for the life of me think what they were called. I know they were expensive at the time.

I held them in place with some X-lite Ti bolts

Thanks in advance

those ebay ones are a later version I think, - they're shaped a bit like their V brakes

You're right they are a slightly different shape
