|When I was building my C40 2 years ago with Record, I found that the pivot bolt for the rear caliper was not long enough to fit through the oversized brake bridge area of the seat stays. I did not realize at the time that they make longer recessed nuts, and seeing the longer bolt on the front brake caliper, I assumed I just needed another front brake. So, I ordered another complete set and had it over nighted to me to complete the installation just before an event where I wanted to ride the bike. I admit it, I was stupid and panicked. Sheesh.
At least since then I have bought more bikes and put the brakes to good use.

|I needed one replacing my steel fork with carbon, and I couldn't believe they would be this expensive. My dad found me one pretty quick, but for 9 bucks Canadian. It costs them how much to make these???|
