    You shouldn't need long reach calipers.

    I used to have one, and the calipers I ended up putting on the front were wicked short.

    thanks guys, my ignorance on all things brake abounds. i finally figured it out though. he's stoked on his new ride, and i plan on trying to convince him to go fixed instead of ss once the bike arrives.
