I have a pretty cool Trek 500 Tri Series. See posting on the C&V forum. The brakes really do not fit the bike. They are new Tektro, look cheap and don't grab well. Looking for a more period correct set of black anodized aero brakes. Thanks Much!!

I have a set of Royal GranCompe 400. Do you need levers also?


White lever are Aero, black levers are non-aero

I was just going to suggest that Gran Compe are a great choice. Aren't they actually SunTour Superbe?

The best black brakes even made are the Mavics. You won't believe how good brakes are until you try them.

Those would be perfect. And yes, I need the levers as well.

If you are willing to part with them, please let me know the shipped price to Dayton Ohio.
I'd prefer the white levers.
I will send it to you PayPal FF.

thank you,
Joe Harper

Scratch that - I'd prefer the black ones to keep the set together.

Kool Stop pads transform mediocre brakes into good brakes and good brakes into great brakes. Most current lower end brakes come with pads made out of crayons and old plastic cutting boards, it seems....
