I am using V brakes on a bike that only had coaster brakes and now has pedal crank swapped for dirt bike foot pegs.

Slower speed like 5 mph on dirt I can skid the rear tire. Together front and rear at like 10 mph can stop pretty good, but this is with my ratio at 40:1 parade speed set up. I will for dirt bike have 20:1 change over.

I see with 9 bucks shipping and some tax under 35 bucks.

I am going to see if there are any in local stores that can compete with this.

Apples and Oranges quality maybe have to make some adjust for comparison, but I when looking at drum brakes had seen usually from 50 on up to maybe 150 bucks and was quite against going to a more powerful stopping brake system.

I also like the idea that wet conditions are not as bad where the exposed components are compared with rim brake systems. Drum though with spoke lacing cost I know you can add to the cost where I can tackle the disk assembly I think!
