4 LEATHER FACED WET WEATHER BRAKE BLOCKS FOR STEEL RIMS CANTI V BRAKE NOS

These were designed to improve wet weather braking on steel rims , invented just before the new British Standards came in back in the 80s , because normal brake shoes would not pass the strict brake test for BS1602/1on steel rims in the wet
These  are ideal for all weather riding especially in the wet but ONLY for use on steel rims.
  • LEATHER FACE BLOCKS ARE USED WITH STEEL RIMS TO IMPROVE BRAKING PERFORMANCE IN THE WET,
  • ALL MANUFACTURERS USED THESE THROUGHOUT THE EIGHTIES AND NINETIES ON ALL THEIR MOUNTAIN  BIKES THAT HAD STEEL RIMS
  • THESE WILL SUIT ALL TYPES OF BIKES WITH V OR CANTI-BRAKE SYSTEMS THAT USE THIS PEG STYLE  BRAKE BLOCKS 
  • THE PEG (OR SHAFT AS SOME PEOPLE CALL IT) OF THESE  BRAKE  BLOCKS ARE  KNURLED SO YOU CAN GET THEM EXTRA TIGHT TO STOP ANY MOVEMENT UNDER EXTREME BREAKING .
  • BLOCK LENGTH - 45MM
  • EVERYONE THAT IS RIDING A STEEL RIM BIKE WITH CALIPER BRAKES SHOULD FIT THESE THE DIFFERENCE IS INCREDIBLE!
PLEASE NOTE YOU MUST NOT USE THESE ON ALLOY RIMS BECAUSE THEY WILL DAMAGE ALLOY RIMS
