    Know any deals on decent V-Brake Boosters?

    im only finding some questionable quality boosters on Ebay (Hong Kong dealers)
    Know any dealers that stock em' for MTB's? Everything else seems to be Trials bike specific.

    thanks

    Nope...well Tektro use to make a decent, thick and slightly I-Beam design'd one, but I can't even find that version. I collect some nice one's, but they aren't around anymore, except the occasional Salsa Booster- if you can find one cheap, and preferably w hardware.

    Here's a nylon (why not alum- shat?) one, w a partial I-Beam design, Brand-X

    thanks, but somehow i think a plastic booster wont perform well, even if it has "carbon fiber effect/finish"

    Anyone else?

    fleaBay is the place/

    sorry to say Vbrakes are antique by todays standards.shimano carbon boosters fetch $40+,if Nashbar stopped selling them then they will be hard to find.check out the few examples at;Gorilla Brake Beefer Cantilever Type Brake Boosters - Bicycle Parts at discount prices / the Buyer's Guide / Bicycle Parts at their finest! / Professional Bicycle Source / Bike Pro

    Hey - I have a new/unused Gorilla Brake Beefer in original packaging originally purchased from Cambria Bike. If you want it let me know via PM. CHEAP (as in postage cost).
