Are those polished Archetypes or non polished?
My pads must be okay because the brakes stop quite well. I also lucked out when I found 8 NOS pads for them in a parts drawer at a bicycle shop in the city near me.
I like the looks and the function of the AX stuff.

^^^^ Oh das nice!!!!!
Alright y'all. This is my first single speed bike.
It's a late 70's/early 80's Raleigh that I had my parents ship down to me from my grandparents garage. It's been hanging there for over 20 years. I used to ride it when I was younger. Stripped it down to the frame, which is in fabulous condition, and put all new components on it. Literally the only original pieces are the frame itself, and the seat post (which I just haven't replaced...yet). Learned how to put everything together myself. It was a lot of fun.
I built it for commuting to work, so it will get a rack soon. But right now, I love the way it turned out.
