Please recommend a decent V-Brake Booster
My XTR V-brakes are visibly flexing the seat-stays my 01' Cannondale F600.
I think i need a booster, but i cant find any brake boosters for sale in my price range that dont look like junk.
1) know any good stiff boosters for sale priced under $45?
2) will a trials-bike boosters work/fit on a MTB?
The chasertech ones on ebay look decent. The hong kong ones for ~$7, not so much.
I've always liked the DKG, brodie & salsa ones, but they're not made anymore.
actually, according to this thread, DKG is making them again!
I have a silver Brooklyn Machine Works Brake booster you can have for free* if want it. It's been sitting in a box for years...like new, I just don't see myself using it again.

Looks like the one pictured here: 2001 Kona Lava Dome - the build commences | Retrobike
A most gracious offer, that booster looks solid/stout... shall I paypal you shipping costs for the "solid" . I do have a plethora of odd parts I need to get rid off
I will pm you asap!
PM received. It'll go out on Monday.
Shipping should be minimal. It's on me.
extras floating about?
Will go $10. For something vintage.
02 NRS, not sure if that is aimed at me, but no, I only have the one booster.
Best of luck!
I just got the Booster k1creeker, thanks a ton! This will extend the mileage/lifespan on my old mtb no doubt. Will Pay the solid forward when that time comes
Glad to hear it arrived quickly.
