One problem :(

Ok later today i am going to purchase a Fit str 2. Now one problem is that the bike is brakeless and has no mounts. Now im ordering it at dans comp and they give you a free caliper brake system, will i have to buy any mounts or anything else special with it? i am not quite at the skill level where i can ride brakeless lol

so any help would be appreciated, thank you

Then get something else. Caliper brakes are garbage, and you're paying too much for a s*** bike anyways.

Get a:
Stolen Heist

Then paint it a different color, not a big deal.
