    Keith (or anyone), do you have a cost of a set of long-pull single pivot brakes? Cheap is fine, since they're going on a bike to ride to the grocery store with.

    Sorry...yer vernacular is a little cloudy. You need long reach(?) road style brakes? I def have a rear long reach cheap. Front may be trickier.....perhaps a Mafac Racer centerpull?

    Something like this: Tektro R556 Long Reach

    Edit: But now that I think about it, I think I only need rear. Score!

    To deal with the terminology question: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bicycle...bicycle_brakes

    I seem to have what Wikipedia says are Single pivot side-pull calliper brakes. Can I use Dual-pivot side pulls?

    Yes. Assuming the single pivots use recessed allen bolts and they are of the correct reach.

    I tried to find this information on Sheldon's, but what is a recessed allen bolt? How would i know whether I have them or not?

    jousting? that's very medi-evil of you traffic jammer!
    "Never do anything that you wouldn't want to have to explain to the paramedics."

    "His first words were 'did you bike today?' I hesitated before admitting that I had, thinking I was going to get a lecture on how bad the roads were and how I shouldn't try to bike home. Instead he said 'man, you're lucky! I've been sitting in traffic for over 1/2 hr, and I've only gone about 2 miles. Some guy on a bike passed me about 20 minutes ago and I'm sure he's home by now'."

    So my brakes are not recessed, and I don't want to go through the issues of the making them so. So I guess I need the original single-pivot kind.

    Bike Jousting...a lost sport, purely for the blood sport entertainment value of the spectators. I was thinking we'd have a saftey meeting while watching the carnage, and the beaten, bloodied warrior who emerges victorious gets the tickets. It does seem a little over the top for a 5$ ticket, but hey, you get your fun where you can, you know? I think Keith would like the jousting as well. I KNOW the crackheads would find it endlessly amusing.

    Knowing full well it'll be first come first serve at Cavern. ...accept for 2wheelsgood, he bought me off with a borrow of his Trials DVD.

    Do I have to use a lance or is a mace acceptable? I've got a pretty good backhand.
