Control Tech v-brake, 1998 circa

JimW - 11/05/12 - 7:32am

I had a set of brakes similar to these but they had a stainless wire/rod to link them not a noodle.
Worked well and were very cool.

Those look like Control Tech V-Brakes. I have the Cantilever version on a Santa Cruz Tazmon very creative spring system (located in the triangle).

Scott - 11/05/12 - 8:13am

Control Tech V-Brakes. Had them on my Gary Fisher Cake.

These look like Grafton brakes

Spencer - 11/05/12 - 10:00am

Control tech. Machine tech were much more artistic.

RWG - 11/05/12 - 6:25pm

Marinovative v brake?

James - 11/06/12 - 11:55am

At first thought they were Marinotave (spelling?), but I only remembered those in silver. So would lean to a set of Control Tech’s instead.
