    Black front brake for IRO?

    Forgive me if this has been asked, however I just searched through eleven pages of BF history and could find nothing on an all black front brake. I'm buying parts for my new IRO and cant find an information on this. Any recomendations? Cheap is a plus

    A caution with Chuckbikes brakes. I have two pairs and they aren't really short reach. They are more of a medium reach brake. I had a hard time getting the pad lined up with the rim. I haven't measured them but they definitely aren't 39mm short reach brakes.

    This is why he provides an email where you can ask him all the relevant questions before buying. Terms like "short reach" and "long reach" can provide differing measurements depending who you talk to. If in doubt ask for exact numbers.
