3DV PURPLE Paul MotoLite Linear Pull Brake (NEW)

Current Stock:

Product Description

Radical limited edition 3D Violet anodized set of Paul Component Motolite v brakes! This color matches perfect to retro 1990's ano components in 3DV purple.  These are designed for use with v-brake levers.  These are my favorite rim brakes of all time.  They are super easy to set up and adjust.  The power and modulation are as good or better than most mechanical disc brakes or a lower end hydraulic disc brake, something no other linear pull brake can match.

From the manufacturer

All Motolite’s have the capability of running a larger size wheel. In other words, the arms allow the pads to travel way up the arm so you could say, run a 650b or 700c wheel on a bike designed for 26”wheels.

This brake is 100% machined in-house, from 6061 Aluminum. Like all our brakes, these feature our over-sized sealed pivot sleeves machined to a tolerance of plus or minus one thousandths of an inch. And of course our independently adjustable square wire springs keep everything snappy and balanced.

The quick release mechanism is super simple and always reliable. Why doesn’t everybody do it like this?

Yes, disc brakes are taking over. We’re fine with that (ahem, Klampers), but if you want to keep things simple, avoid that inevitable disc noise, or have a classic Ritchey that’s been hanging in the garage since the early 90’s needing a makeover: these are the brakes for you.

Please note that all of our brakes are sold per wheel.
