pretty and decent

These work well and look pretty nice, in my opinion. I replaced a perfectly functional but very unattractive set of Shimano V brakes on my city bike, and I am very happy with how these look. The font and branding are odd, but you can remove that off with nail polish remover or fine sandpaper.

They are pretty easy to install, but for my situation I had to get a front cable hanger and work around the bracket for my rear rack, but otherwise, a very straightforward set up. I also replaced my ugly mountain bike levers with the elegant and classic Tektro FL750 levers and they work very well together.

The only issue is that there's no barrel adjuster on the brakes (and not on the FL750 levers either), so fine tuning the tension is less convenient.

Great replacement for those aging canti's

These function perfectly, and look great on older bikes that need their canti's replaced.
