For Sale: Hope V Twin Hydraulic Disc Brake set

I have a set of Hope V Twin Hydraulic Disc Brakes for Cyclocross bikes.They're in really good condition - no issues - they're a pretty bombproof set up. The front pads are near to worn but the rear were replaced not too many miles ago and have plenty of life left in themI'll post with brand new 160mm discs and brand-new bolts (that's mount bolts and disc mount bolts) for a total of £150 - or £135 without the discs and bolts.See More

I hope you read my comments in the constructive spirit I send them.

Bradford National Trophy, Peel Park - a modern-day classic.

I don't know what it is, or how to describe just why, but this is still just the best 'cross course in our country.  (Okay - the best with under 7,000ft of climbing). 

With my injury, I was a spectator this year, but did that spoil my enjoyment?  It did not.
