crashed today and broke my front (Tektro) brake.
was thinking of replacing it with a Shimano brake (it's a frankenbike anyway).
looks like I can get a Tiagra brake for half the price of a 105 ($25 vs. $50).
my gut says go for the 105 based on the great reviews I have read, but I hate to waste money if Tiagra is as good.
I'm 275# so stopping power is impt
