    Brake recommendations

    I'm building up a new ss bike with some moustache bars and reverse levers (only reason it's not going fixed is because I like this aesthetic...such a dork...) Anyway, the brakes I had on it (old modolo mach 1's) don't have strong enough return springs to pull the levers (unsprung) back, even with well-lubed housing. Anyone have rec's for sidepulls with very strong return springs?

    a friend of mine just put a tektro set that he claimed was for bmx onto his crosscheck. He seems to really love them, claiming them to have more stopping power than his cantilevers. I think these are them:
