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)

i have a question regarding nmsw and brakes

hey guys, i did a search of the forum and couldnt find any answers so im here posting a thread bothering you guys.

ive seen pictures people rocking black non machined veeps/b43s with a front brake.
just wondering whats going on with that.
i want black veeps/b43s and a front brake but really dislike the look of the silver machined sidewall

Yeah, you can do that, as long as the rim isn't powdercoated. I think the black color is anodized, which is fine with brakes.

Anyway...

B43s don't have a flat braking surface and aren't meant for use with brakes.

Same goes for H+Son Formation Face. If you're looking for deeper than 30mm + breaking surface, it's the H+S SL42.

Or the EighthInch Julian if you're on a little more of a budget.

There are also the Brev M wheels. No one ever talks about them, but are a very nice wheel.

Kinlin XR-300s are 30mm deep, with machined sidewall (meant for brakes.)
