ok so while i was doing some winter tune ups, i was tightening my v brakes down after replacing the brake line and lubing the joints, i tightened down the brake and it just snapped, ive had issues with this brake since i aquired the frame, hence why i was tuning it up thinking it was something else, after further review it looks like a bad weld job and it got rusted, ive never inspected the boss that closely until now.
i guess thats life tax for ya,
so now i have no back brakes, i love my combo shifter brake set on this current frame, and i would hate to have to ditch my current brake lever set for something mismatched, is there a good replacement brake that mounts through the fork mount for caliper brakes that will work effectively with v brake levers ?
ive tried caliper brakes with v brake levers in the past, its not a safe thing i would do with back brakes...
also im trying to avoid welding the part back on, this was a curbside special that i have fallen in love with and have alot of sweat equity in... i hope there is an option out there im missing
thanks in advance!
