Very nice for the price
These are very nice brakes for the money, quality manufacturing and quality parts. I have been happy with all of the Avid products I have used over the years.

When setup on narrow rims 20mm the springs are barley long enough so they don't slip off the posts on the arm when squeezed to the rim. They were never designed to be used on such narrow rims though. Once adjusted they work perfectly, the pad material does not rub off on the rims as the originals did and the braking action is smooth and feels better.

I needed to upgrade the brakes on a Diamondback Clarity 1 I am seting up for my 11 year old son. This is one of the few 700c womens bikes with a short enough stand over height that does not look like a girls bike. I cannot afford to purchase him an expensive bike now. With an old spare set of narrow race wheels/tires on it he can now keep up a great pace and he likes to go fast.

PROS: Fade- Free, Sturdy Design, Great Stopping Power

BEST USES: Road Biking, Mountain Biking

Great brakes
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.

Good simple cheap brakes
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.

PROS: cheap, Stops, Black, Simple

Simple Solution
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.

Bought these to...
Bought these to replace broken brakes on my bike, these things blow the stock brakes away. The only thing keeping me from coming to a stop now is the fact that when you jam the lever down, the wheels lock up and you wind up sliding on the tire lol best money ive ever spent.
