    Brakes on Ebay Good or No

    I'm starting a cx build up and saw these brakes.

    Should I buy?

    There's nothing wrong with those but I prefer the feel of the Avid Shorty such as these:

    I never had much luck with the shimano lx's. They are good for slowing you, but terrible for stopping you. The avids are a much better brake.

    Jesus Christ, that is 10x cheaper than the usual price that those run at.
