Suntour Superbe brake calipers

Suntour Superbe, recessed mount. $65.00 shipped

These were completely cleaned rebuilt and reassembled with red synthetic grease. The condition is very good, with some signs of usage. Brake pads are shimano replacements, not the originals.

I may be high on the price for these. I've never owned or sold superbe calipers before. I was basing the price on the "ready to use" condition, but I am willing to budge to move these on to another home.

New-ish pads, greased and cleaned superbe. I don't think $60+shipping is beyond the pale. I think most people just enjoy seeing "price includes shipping".

Yeah I was joking with the girl at the UPS store the other day that $11 to $13 seems to be the standard rate no matter how small and light you make the package.

I think the price is realistic. They are the very image of simplicity and elegance.

Pretty sure I've sold and shipped a pair of two at this price point. Granted they would have had original pad holders, though that's not a requirement for everyone. Excellent brakes regardless.

Thanks for the feedback guys, I don’t want to be “that guy” posting the huffy for $1,000 dollars.

Your good. Lack of response may just be the low point of the cycle of interest. I have a pair and a pair of the PRO hidden springs. The later are extremely effective for single poll. Nearly rivals the double polls I have.

PM sent, curse this place!!

I'm already sittting on mint Superbe FD,RD, and shifters. Now I'll have the brakes and just need to find the brake levers and a crank. Then of course I'll need a frame worthy of the parts and BAM yet another bike will have snuck back into the overflowing bike cave.

And then you'll need to find the elusive (and pricey) Superbe stem.

I'll indulge my desire to hijack since this item has sold. Wow, first I've heard of it! That cutout and just general high quality makes is a very pretty stem. https://velobase.com/ViewComponent.a...473fc&Enum=102
