Avid Shorty Ultimate

Postby Baalzamon » Sun Mar 06, 2011 2:46 pm

So I've got a case of upgraditis and now there is nothing that is stock on my Masi bike, however my last purchase the Avid Shorty Ultimates I've got a slight problem. My rims are Mavic A719 which are wider than 23mm and I need to use the aftermarket brake pad kit 00-5115-044-020. Anyone know what that is?

Edit
Found it Shorty Ultimate (Road) Cross Brake Pad & Cartridge Holder, 25.5mm Width (ZIPP 303)

Hi Baalzamon,

How are the brakes going? Any issues with setup or reliability?

Cheers

None so far, brakes been going very well and allowed my supernova E3 to be mounted on the fork crown without the cable rubbing as it was rubbing before. That was the main reason I upgraded to them.

Is quite a different setup on the Ultimates as well. Need an allen key to hold things in place whilst with a spanner adjust the tension on it. But once it's set I've not had it slip. Adjusting the brakes is extremely easy as well and for tyre removal. I can do my front one whilst I'm riding if my brakes are rubbing.

Thread revival time...anyone know where I can find a pair of these in Australia? I need to replace the brakes on my BMC TM01 with these to help fit a wider wheel
