    Brake boosters

    Hey all,
    I am looking for a high quality brake booster to stiffen up the rear of my bike. The frame flexes ALOT when I apply braking pressure. It was manufactured for canitlevers and I have converted to "v-brakes". I am having a hard time finding someone who manufactures boosters. There is a carbon fiber going for 40+ on an auction right now. Is that high?
    Thanks

    It's carbon fiber, of course it's gonna demand an arm or leg. How old is this frame? Perhaps it's a better investment to just upgrade the frame.

    Brake boosters are big in the trials scene. they will make a huge difference.

    i would get a good aluminum one. A carbon one is probably too expensive, and won't work as well as aluminum.
