    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.)
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html
