Currently using the composite scissor brakes.
$65.00 from Sportaid.com
On my second set.. first the spring breaks and then eventually the part that locks against the tire breaks around the rivet. I am yet to get 2 years out of a set of these brakes.
Just starting to seek out what my other options are.. When they are new they are pretty sweet, but wondering if there are any aluminum or steel versions, I couldn't care less about the weight!
Or is this normal for folks? changing out brakes every couple of years ?
