I知 needing to upgrade my brakes from some old single pivot brakes to some dual pivot brakes. I have a single speed road bike and use it to get around Seattle which can be VERY hilly, and at times, really wet, so I need some good brakes. I知 only looking to spend around $100 or less for a brake set. Can anyone shed some light on the Tektro r741 (about $75 online), the SRAM Apex (about $60 online), and the SRAM Rival (about $100 online).
I believe all three use Swiss Stop brake pads. The Tektro set weigh 300 grams, the Apex set weigh 308 grams, and the Rival weigh 287 grams.
Do any of the three have a ratting quick release? I知 just looking to get the best bang for my buck. If you have another suggestion for a brake set, please let me know and why.
Thanks for your time!
