Brake Accessories

by Levi Bloom

Want some cool accessories for your brakes? Here are my favorite additions:

Brake Booster

These plates fit over a V-brake to boost their stopping power.

Brake lever covers

These covers slide over the brake lever to provide more comfort. It's like having another handlebar grip, but on the lever. I have found these to be most useful for freestyle BMX riding.
