Have mentioned these a few times, while in the loft I took a couple of pics.

Used a couple of times only, they are mint boxed, I think they saw two rides up the Pentlands before Pace forks and Avid Magnesiums replaced them.

I've got a couple of sets of those, the levers and brakes. I've also got a set of levers in black (which I personally prefer) also thinking about dismantling a set of the brakes and haveing them anodized black...

very good brakes.

I like the way the black ones have the 'black ops' blurb written all over them, but you do see less silver ones for sure.

There were red (and presumably other) coloured Arch Supremes about at the end of the nineties. Wonder how many people on here have some of those.

I've just acquired some of these on my Xizang - I hadn't seen them in the flesh before and very pleased with the performance - although they do rattle a little through the bumpy stuff! :)
