I see so many brake mount kits varying in price. Aren’t they universal with different brand frames with removable brake mounts?

There's 3 common different types, although the neal wood are becoming the most common. Chances are a few brands have tried there own, so there might be loads out there.

Turns out there's even more. I've seen some that have a grub screw to help hold them in place, and I'm fairly certain the fly ones are different from all of these?

I can attest to this! Just had to buy one and it worked!

I like sundays mounts personally.

Invented by neal wood who used to race for s&m, then became their product designer, and now works for cult. As I said, they've become the most popular, but there's still different types

Buy a frame with welded mounts :b

Mishinn, generally they work better with less flex and loosening issues. Plus if you have welded chainstay mounts you get more clearance compared to removable chainstay mounts

There's a 6mm through-bolt, then an 8mm and a 10mm that both use a seperate bolt for the brake arm. Most frames have flat bosses on the frame, the little fishmouth pieces are just for looks on MOST kits, but some frames do need them (if the boss on the seat stay isn't flat.)

New United frame looks really good and comes with welded lugs.

If I could go a tenth as high as Larry Edgar goes, then I would still be blasting super high.

I have broach mounts on my frame and if you don't red loctite them you are wasting your time. Sunday's are the best looking mounts in my opinion however the Neal wood option is structurally the strongest option. Seriously makes you wonder why not everyone is using Neal wood nowadays. Mine is B in the second photo and they are the worst if you don't red loctite them, because they don't have anything to grab on to when you are adjusting your brakes.
