Just took delivery of a set of these levers and Vee's c/w cables and all Ti hardware!! £100 off ebay and all I can say is PHWOAR :D

The spring tension screws are black steel though, which isnt very nice, so Ive just got some M3x10 Ti screws out of the stores which will fit perfectly :)

so that was you then. I nearly had that little lot. Good buy.

Watch those screws. That is the only downside of that brakeset, they are too easy to thread strip.

I have three sets of these brakes and have over done them a couple of times. Spares are available for about £12 a pair of screws/ tension arms, but it's too easy to do IMO.
