FFS not another brake thread.....
I am looking after a mates bike with v brakes and it has got me thinking.
I only do what can be best described as scared overcautious XC. V small jumps flowy singletrack, i dont really need massive stopping power.
I have disc brakes which work fine, but I am useless at bleeding them or generally looking after them.
My mates v brakes work fine, and are easier for me to work with, and will probably be cheaper in the long run, and free up some cash (if i sell my wheels, brakes, forks) `so i am considering getting some nice v brake wheels with ceramic rims and some nice v brakes.
So recommend (and tell me generally about) some 2nd hand v brake wheelsets (is it worth getting ceramic rims)? for around £100, I would ideally buy from the classifieds?
same with a v brake set, which are the best? XTR avid.... cant really afford those kcnc blingy ones....
