Suitable brakes and purchase criteria
« on: August 08, 2020, 04:02:04 PM »

Hello,
i wanted to take this opportunity to ask what you have to consider when buying brakes and how you can distinguish good brakes from bad brakes.


Is it also possible to take precautions to ensure that the brakes last longer?


I would appreciate any advice and answer!


Many thanks in advance!

I ride with dia-compe hombres as my front brake, but it took forever to dial in to my liking. A lot of riders use the Odyssey Evo brske. I've heard really good things about it.

honestly,all classic 990 style spring brakes do the same thing.


Its really all about brake pads and how dialed the lever/cable/brake system is.


For the rear brake there are great options that dont need tuning like the 990 style ones do,like the odyssey springfield and the Khe/fly/trebol spinghanger solutions
