I'm interested in purchasing a bike, however due to my location can't get into a bike shop, so will need to order it online.
The 2009 GT 2.0 Transeo I am interested in does not explicitly say it has v-brakes. I know it is not the disk version though.
The 2010 GT 2.0 Transeo mentions it has v-brakes.
Is the v-brake a fairly recent improvement in rim brakes as recent as 2010?
I know it is common for people to assume disk brakes are better. But I'm trying to bring down the price of my purchase, and do not intend to go cycling on rough mountain paths, or do too much wet/muddy condition cycling. Which is better in your opinion for my usage?
Thanks in advance.
