    Decent U-Brake for an upgrade

    I have an old Schwinn High Sierra MTB that I'm making into a commuter and I want to upgrade the Suntour roller cam brakes with U-brakes.

    What is a decent U-brake out there that I should be looking at?

    Thanks,
    Tim
    Can anyone give me a ride from Monterey to Big Bear on Wednesday or Thursday?

    Probably a good question to ask the BMX guys.

    Here's a few to look at anyway: http://www.danscomp.com/products.php...w=BRAKESUSTYLE

    Yes, they are being produced.

    BMX bikes use them because of their profile when used on the chain stays.

    Many mountain bikes used them as well as roller cams, so the mounts are out there on lots of older mountain bikes. Like my High Sierra.

    I went with DiaComp 990's. Good reviews, decent price.

    Thanks,
    Tim
