Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Well, perhaps I just haven't had much experience with high end caliper brakes, but unless it's some sort of stamped metal part, most decent name brand brakes will work fine. Most of the feel is related to housing and cable.

Decent brakes, Decent housing and decent levers properly set up should have no issues
