    Which Brake Setup?

    Building up my Fixed and am removing the rear brake and Found this on Ebay:


    Fits my theme but is the same brakes I currently have, which work, just not super great.

    Then I found this at Nashbar


    was thinking of using this lever:


    Is the cheapy nashbar brake going to perform any better?

    Thanks,

    CJ

    the nashbar brake will preform much better than that janky anodized single pivot brake. The gold one looks super cheap and the arms will probably flex pretty hard under pressure.
    “When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark,
    When work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having,
    Just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road,
    Without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.”
