Nice brakes

      • Commuting/City

      Comments about Nashbar V-brake Caliper:

      I got a set of these to replace the brakes on my Nashbar Mercato city bike that I use for commuting. They are a nice upgrade over the brakes that came with the bike--the return springs are much stronger, which makes them easier to adjust, and the pads provide better stopping power and modulation that the stock brakes. They were very easy to install as well.

              Installation and adjustment are a snap. Springs work better than similarly priced v-brakes. Came with J noodle and hardware.

                Comments about Nashbar V-brake Caliper:

                I needed to replace the brakes on an antique Peugot Orient Express rigid ATB. This bike is 45 years old and still is fun to ride. The original DiaCompe brakes were just not working well. I run with mud fenders so the length of the brake actuators was important. The install went well, and they work like expected for new brakes. They appear visually to be too thin for MTB duty, but so far no bends, cracks, or failures.
