I've got a Fuji fixed-gear conversion circa 1983. It came with center-pull brakes. I'd like to switch to a front side-pull brake.
Here are my questions.
Before I get too far into this, I'm not imagining the superiority of side-pull brakes to center-pulls, am I?
The wheels are 27". Reach would be a problem only if I had switched to 700c wheels, right?
Are there any issues I'm not even considering? Will the bolt on, say, a Shimano Ultegra side-pull be either too short or too fat to work with my fork?
Thanks for your help.
