Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Dia Compe Brakes?

first post.

they seem like the same brake as their keirin brakes, which i have on one of my bikes. Well it works. It feels a little bulky and stiffer compared to Tektro brakes.
As far as pads, kool stop.
