|Cane Creek BRS200 stopping power?||TB|
Jan 6, 2002 8:09 AM
|I am looking at building a lightweight climbing bike and am considering the Cane Creek BRS200 Ti brakes. I also plan to use a pair of American Classic tubular wheels with carbon rims. My question is will the single pivot brakes and carbon braking surfaces have enough stopping power on a long descent? Or should I stick with a more modern dual pivot design?|

|add in fast descents and your looking to dump it. to me its not worth to save 100g if you roll into a truck or something because you cant stop. want lighter than DA, go with the Mavic SSCs.
or the best option which my racer friends do is buy a set of mavics and a set of CC brakes. use the mavics in the front and the CCs in the rear. best and lightest option that actually may stop you

|Yeah, when I think of quality DiaComp comes to the front of my mind...... They can change the name, but behind the badge it's still the SOS. |
If there is one thing you don't want to skimp on it's brakes.
