    Great brakes to convert from one wheel size to another

    Poughkeepsie, NY

    What I Like: Adjustability

    What I Dislike: A little heavy and lack of left-hand pull for the front

    How I Ride: Mostly roads

    I used a set of these to convert a Lightning P-38 from a 559mm rear wheel to a 700c rear wheel. These brakes aren’t light, but the flip side of this is that they are well built and seem more robust than the Cane Creek Direct Curve brakes I had been using. They work exactly as advertised and have plenty of stopping power. Very easy to set up, and the price is right. The only thing that would make them better would be a left-hand pull for the front. It was either these or a very expensive set of Paul Motolites. Glad I got these.
