      Comments about Avid Single Digit 5 Brake 2011:

      I bought these to replace the stock brakes that were just too beat up to be relied on, the installation for both front and rear took maybe 11 minutes, set my cable tension and I was on the road within 15 minutes; the diference in stopping power is simply amazing, I tested them on a nearby bridge and under some pretty good speed, I came to a complete halt in a very short distance, the back tire skidded a bit but the performance since then ...I cannot complain.

      Buy them.

          Upgraded from Canti brakes on an older Giant mtb that my daughter uses on the road. These brakes are a huge improvement and did not break the bank.

                The best [$] I've ever spent on my girlfriend - took them out of the box, slapped them on her rig, and now feel comfortable knowing she'll be able to stop. Great price, great brand, great looking. Little initial adjustment. Just a simple, cheap solution to v-braking needs.

                Comments about Avid Single Digit 5 Brake 2011:

                I replaced the stock Tektro V-brakes on my main commuter bike with these. It made a small but noticeable difference in braking power and modulation. Just feels a bit more solid and controlled. These are a great value for the price.

                The Tektros weren't bad, I just put them on my backup bike, replacing the weak-sauce cantilever brakes that were original.

                    I replaced some old brakes on my rebuild of a '94 Schwinn High Plains and feel like its a brand new bike. For once I can stop quickly rather than slow down on this bike.

                    Comments about Avid Single Digit 5 Brake 2011:

                    These brakes are one of the best investments I've made in my bicycle. The stop the bike in all conditions - even going down steep East Tennessee hills in the rain with a heavy load. Easy to install and adjust, and can work well with very inexpensive pads.
