Fixed Cx Brake Judder
29 May 2012
5 / 5
I recommend this product
Consmaybe a bit basic, but performs well
Prosprice, the only mini-v I could find anywhere
I got this brake to fix a problem on my Cannondale CX9 cyclocross bike. The standard cantilever brakes juddered violently on braking due to the carbon fork flexing and stretching the brake cable tighter. This little brake fixed a big problem, and I would recommend it to anyone getting judder with centre pull canti brakes. I would have paid more for a higher spec brake, but that said this one works perfectly.

Do The Gemini Mini V Brakes Fit On Standard Bosses?
28 Apr 2015
a) Are they as powerful as standard size V brakes? If not, b) are they any better than cantilevers?

c) Alternatively, as the problem is lack of space below the rear seat bolt (and there is little room for a travel agent), are there any V brakes where the 'other' arm takes the cable (ie on the rear pair, the right one has the noodleholder and the left the cable clamp), as the routing on this frame is along the right of the top tube.

Thank you.
SJS Customer Service:

These mini brakes are powerful, but due to them having slightly less leverage than standard V-brakes they will be slightly less powerful. They will however still be much more powerful than most cantilever brakes. Unfortunately all of the V-brakes we stock have the noddle fitting from the left hand side.
