    Brake for KHS Flite 100

    I want to put a front brake on a KHS Flite 100 but the one I have doesn't fit.
    What brakes would work for it?

    what kind of brake do you have?

    i have it on my kilo, and i believe it's the same frame, essentially.

    It's a shimano.
    When I hook it up the pads are too low and hit the spokes...I can't adjust it enough to fix this either...
    Thanks for the help!

    I got some tektro rx 40 for my rush hour after one of the calipers broke on the stock tektros. Got the pair for about 45 bucks online and they came with black koolstop pads. When adjusted properly, they have as much braking power as the ultegra calipers on my roadie. Good buy for 45 bucks.
