    Dia Compe Brakes?

    first post.
    thinking about getting a dia compe front break for the new "BIG RED" Custom Alloy Rolling Project.

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ht_5642wt_1208

    Anyone have experience with this brake?
    also accepting opinions on budget pads.
    thanks in advance.

    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.
