    Brake size for a Visp frame

    Just wondering if anybody can help me. I am about to order a front brake for a visp build and was wondering what size brake I will require. I assume it would be a short reach 39mm - 49mm but I just need to make sure. I dont yet have the frame so I cant just measure it.
    Thanks in advance

    Its a cheap frame, so why not try to build it. However I'd wait for the frame to arrive before dropping $ on the brake, especially that set of brakes + levers will cost as much as the actual frame l o l

    You're missing the point. We're suggesting you use a Kilo TT as a brake. It will surely fit on your Visp's fork.

    I think the 53cm is the long reach model.

    49cm has the standard reach OP needs.

    Right, but Kilos are known to have clearance issues. Better to be safe than sorry.

    No, but it will tell you what size Kilo TT you can use as a front brake and when BD is expecting a restock.
