    Ibis U-brakes?

    I have a 86/'87? rigid Ibis that I have been riding either as a single speed or a 6 speed for years. The problem is that it came with a chain stay Shimano U-brake that after many years of abuse imploded. Anybody have any ideas where I can find another Shimano U- brake or adapters for V- brakes? Any solutions would be appreciated.

    Thanks kb11

    Majors props to kb11. Got the u-brake in the mail yesterday. Replaced the broken arm and in an hour major rigid ss fun on trails again. I been riding my geared fs'r for 2 weeks forgot how much fun a rigid ss is. Thanks again.
