DESCRIPTION

Need to replace a worn out or broken brake, or add on a new one? Our 6KU Caliper Brake set is a great choice for a rider looking for added stopping power, or the brakeless rider looking for a little piece of mind in those sketchy moments.

This is a Medium-reach caliper (49-59mm of drop to the brake pads from the mounting bolt) It fits our 6KU FIxie , but not our Urban Track model (which needs short-reach brake calipers).

Good Caliper brake Set

Good product, I have a 6ku bike and just replace the old cable brake that broked, the new brake cable was a tiny longer than the original one. But work fine.

The delivery time was a bit long

Shipping extremely delayed

I placed the order on July 28. The item did arrive, but 71 days later - an unacceptable amount of time. The company did not contact me regarding the delay, and the item was shipped only after I sent an email asking for information.

6KU Caliper Brake Set with lever

it was super easy to install. took a while to get here, but i will cut you some slack. but i am not giving you a 5 because there were parts laying loose in a box which i thought was very odd. I am actually missing two screws that hold the cable to the frame. i can live without them, which is why i didn't contact you about it, but since you ask.....

They work but...

The brake levers came in in a timely manner, right after I ordered them online. The only issue that I ran into were the tolerances for the brake lever and the actual pads that touch the rim.
The machining tolerances of the lever were off. When first installing them, the arms that go around the OEM handlebar would not fit snug. I had to use a vice grip and some elbow-grease to shape it to fit.
After that, when the caliper was installed, the pads would end up touching the fork, even after properly installing the cable and setting the pads up to the proper height and location. You would think that the caliper set that was made for the bike would fit the bike with no issues, but alas that was not the case.
I'm just happy that I have a brake so I can climb hills and descend with confidence.
