Tektro V brakes I retro fitted to my mountain bike - they were cheap, but they are light, simple to adjust, reliable and very effective. Why pay more?

thanks for your comments.

I dunno how light the brakes on my bike are but they are effective for sure. Only time will show how reliable they will be.
Anyway, I wasnt thinking about changing them just because they don't seem like "prestigious" brakes. Ill keep them as long as they work properly. I was just curious to know more about Tektro.


Just for info - they are made in Taiwain (nm).muncher
