    StarStarStarStarStar Great Brakes

    Great price for good brakes. I have a set of these on a light touring bike, cyclocross, and a mountain bike turned commuter. Good stopping power without chatter or squeal, easy to set up and adjust.

    I have a Surly Long Haul Trucker that I have used extensively for touring and general transportation. I'm often heavily loaded with touring gear or purchased items like groceries or clothing. I need good solid brakes! The original equipment that came with the bike was OK, but they wore out and I replaced them with Avid Shortys. When those calipers wore out, I took the recommendation of a local bike store and mounted a different product. Those were so bad with chatter and ineffective braking, I immediately went back to the Shortys and have not had those problems since.
