Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I need a new brake.

Heres the criteria:
Dual pivot side pull
Black
Clean looking (its for a bare knuckle frame)
Kinda cheap ($50-60)
Available as a single front brake since i won't need the rear.

Suggestions?
