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)

Kilo brakes

what reach calipers would be the right fit for the kilo frame and fork? I'm expecting the frame today and hoping to order brakes as soon as possible. Thanks.

If you ordered the bike from BD, it should come with two brakes. At least my girlfriend's did.

Then again, you only specified a frame, and not a complete bike.

From BD, it comes stock with Tektro R350 brakes and RL570 cross levers.
