    V-Brake Adaptor (for 451 rims on mounts meant for 406 of vice-versa)

    Somewhere in the vastness of the "internets" I came across an adaptor that allowed one to move v-brake mounts for adapting from 406 to 451 wheels (or vice-versa).

    It apparently moved the mounts up or down by about 22mm.

    Has anyone heard of this product?

    I remember the page even cited a pro rider that had it on their bike?

    I did intend on posting it under BMX, someone mentioned this product as an alternative to Paul Components Moto BMX brakes which allow a person to

    I have a Twenty also, in pieces. Post your question in the Folders forum, and you'll get a response. I guess I should find out for myself as well.

    See!

    I was almost right, it was sort of the wrong part of the forum, muahaha.

    Just an FYI...

    Here is a (custom fabricated) version of what I was looking for:
    http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.ph...ke#post1656352

    I swear I saw of version of this for converting from 451 > 406 and vice versa...

    Also there is this part for mounting 700C wheels on a MTB:
    http://www.speedgoat.com/product.asp...t=30&brand=155

    The one advangage to the part I remember is that you could mount it either right side up or upside down depending on the nature of your conversion.

    I don't know if this will serve your needs, I bought a pair of this V-brake mounts a week ago on Ebay, I paid only US$10 equivalent for it. They weight 59 grams for a pair, the brake bosses are titanium.

    Good luck
