Brake Kit - Front

Postby Sydguy » Thu Jul 05, 2012 9:22 pm

Hi Team

Looking for a front brake for Azzurri Pista, stock track bars.

Few places do rear brake kits, because most bikes come with front brake.

Anyone know a place doing the whole front brake? Dual pivot, lever and cables in a pack?

Cheers

JM

Quite a few on ebay - was looking for similar the other week before deciding to go with a front and rear set.

And that's pretty much how it is anywhere.

A bike shop might be able to 'make up' a package for you but grabbing all 3 separate items off the shelf, and if you are lucky, giving you a pathetic discount... but it will still be dearer than buying online no doubt.

seems the above 2 mount onto the forks. I swear I saw some road brakes in a front only setup with lever & cable

I bit the bullet and went a SRAM or Tektro set for around the $40 mark...decided 2 brakes is probably safer anyway

Cheers - I had thought $50 for whole front brake would be enough, looks like a bit more!

Just read that the fork on your Azzuri is drilled for a brake so no need for those clamp on kits that Lucky7 posted. Surely you can get a lever, caliper & cable separately online for less than $50, just pick your fave online store & fill your cart, how hard can it be?
