Front Brake Set Ups (what you got? how it do?)
just finished swapping parts from my nishiki frame to a fuji. the bike looks cleaner as a whole, so I wanna upgrade the old-ass center pull front brake set up I had going on the nishiki. the brake arms need to have ample reach because the fork is for 27"-ers.
What set ups are you all using that:
1. Looks neat-o
2. Won't break the bank
Just don't put it on your top tube.

Steel snob by accident
here you go. i have the same problem on the rear because it's a 27" frame and i put 700c tires on it
if you have mounts for downtube shifters, make it so the down tube shifter is the brake lever (not serious)
here's a pic for interest's sake
generic tektro TT lever on Nitto RB021s. looks fine and functions just as well.
Dia-Compe centerpull connected to a tektro 2.0 lever. Works great, looks great.
+1 on the centerpull, except get a weinmann instead, it's the same exact design (dia compe is commissioning it now), except there are a whole lot of them, which means that they should be seriously cheap.
