I'd jump off that fence unless you really plan on riding it.

Great - man, I love the planning process myself. What's the stated purpose of your bike? What kind of riding are you planning?

Personally? Brakes are the last bit I want aftermarket. Tried that once with some BREW brakes and ended up in some lady's tailgate.

I came -> <- that close to smacking my face on the bed of her truck. Rolled over the tailgate on my arm and to this day have a numb spot.

Just an all rounder. I just ride when I want to. Not serious anymore and no longer pile on the miles. I have OA in my left knee pretty bad and need something to regain the strength I lost to it. The reason for an Anderson is I want it,nothing more.

Ahh, Brew brakes were low end Dia Compes machined down to make them lighter, which made them flexier. Then, the center bolts were titanium, which is pretty flexy as well. They were light.

I have these on my new Lighthouse, but have used them on two other bikes as well. Gran Cru brakes by Velo Orange, made for them by a boutique builder in Taiwan. I have ridden/raced on old Nuovo Record, new dual pivot record and chorus, dura ace, and suntour superbe pro, and these are some of the best brakes I ever used.

I think my collection will be complete with this bike, a Orbea Occam 29er that I'm getting as a frame the minute I finish paying for it (reason for selling a bunch of stuff)


At first I will need to scavenge parts from my fisher superfly (fork, wheels) until I'm able to purchase the parts..

Oh the effective top tube is 25 1/4" and that got me a little worry but the frame was to good of a deal to pass out..
