    That's not a break. Sure it might be broke, but break infers the act of damaging something.

    You know the word "pedantic" but you don't know that "break" is also a noun?

    Seriously???

    Right down by number 68.



    As to the OP, does it matter what style of brake? The best stopping power is going to come from linear pull V brakes, and as for road calipers my experience is limitted to a set of Tektro calipers which work ok but haven't really astounded me with their awesomeness

    Wow proper grammar and spelling is obviously necessary in a online forum.
    If you know what it means, who cares.

    edit:
    i just bought myself some cane creek scr-3s, ill let you know if they are any good.

    For the lever Diatech Goldfinger. It's inexpensive, hinged and solid.

    Take it apart, rough it up with some steel-wool and Krylon it any color you want.. same with your brake calipers.

    Any of the dual pivot sidepull calipers should be good as long as you go with premium brake pads such as Kool Stops, properly adjusted. Pads can make a big difference in brake performance. Even the older single pivot sidepulls can be improved a lot with good pads and low friction cables.

    As mentioned V brakes are probably the strongest cable operated rim brakes but they require cantilever posts on the fork to mount and need the correct pull length levers.

    Well there's this weird lever: http://www.benscycle.net/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=188_482&products_id=5970

    Or this guy, but the clamp is black, but you can strip it if you want: http://www.benscycle.net/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=188_482&products_id=4479

    It's tough to find what you're looking for. Believe me, I did.

    Avid Code, all the way.

    ....I mean Ultegra/DA with a Paul Love Lever and Nokon Housing.
    It's bad when you're 19 and people consider you an "old geezer" in the current FG community.
