    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cheap but okay for a low end bike The box contains everything you need except end of cable aluminium caps, which you will need for at least one brake after you cut the cable to the correct length. You will need a 5mm allen key, phillips screwdriver and wirecutters, plus anything you need to take the old brakes off. I popped into poundsavers and got all the tools for £3.00! Watch a few videos on YouTube and you will be good to go. It took about an hour to get them fitted and set up once you have everthing. They are very easy to fit and adjust. I'm not overly impressed with their performance. They do work but are spongy to use. Adjustment of the brake lever is poor. Despite valient attempts, I couldn't get the brake pads off the tyre rim and be able to have the lever not pull all the way in - very frustrating. I have done this many times and it is the poor quality of the calipers at fault. However, they do work quite well. The bike stops when the brakes are applied and they are cheap. I don't think I would buy this again myself but for a cheap bike, they might do a passable job.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from MTB brake replacement Replacing the brakes while renovating a 25 year old rust bucket. This did the job. The quality is good for the price, but is clearly low end. Easy to install and adjust.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Plastic not fantastic This set replaced an old set of Tektro V-brakes. Once fitted, the brakes lacked firmness and seemed very spongy. In addition, one block from each set kept rubbing on the rim. The on-line manual identified the adjuster screw which solved the problem on the rear brake, but on the front one, the screw burst through its plastic guide preventing any possible adjustment. so I was forced to revert to the old Tektro set.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An you need to upgrade brakes Bought the kit to replace the old cantilever brakes on my wife's bike. The job was quite straightforward and after some adjustment the brakes are much more effective than before.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value Upgrade Bought these to upgrade the brakes on my sons Apollo Mentor. The Mentor comes with some pretty poor brakes, pressed steel arms, plastic levers. These Clarks V Brakes looked like a good value upgrade; I paid £23.00. They are good quality for the price, the 2 finger levers feel good and seem quite robust. The whole set is easy to fit and adjust. Every thing you need is in the pack. I've been fixing bikes for years, but even if you only have a basic bike mechanic experience you should be fine (youtube is your friend). In use they are much better than the OEM brakes. They have pretty good progressive feel and the feedback I have is that they are much better, but not brilliant. I think the pads are a bit poor so when these wear out some better quality pads will make quite a difference.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product and price A full V brake for under £20 if you buy on line. Was more expensive in store. This made an excellent replacement for the cheap rubbish brakes on my son's off road scooter.
