Hi all just need some help, I'm currently running 2.45 tires brakeless....had too many close calls so don't want to push my luck and need some rear brakes asap. I've been looking at low profile brake callipers and come across Kink Desist brakes, would they fit the tire size I'm running without any rubbing or are there any other suggestions?

If I could make a suggestion, it'd be to get rid of fatty 2.45" tires.

IMO 2.25 is plenty fat and you can fit most brakes on them

Yep, totally second this.

Plus, if you're grinding often, it'll take some madly precise cable work to ensure the wheel stays in-line and not rubbing as the wheel tends to shift after so many peg slams.

Also lets not forget wide tyres suck for grinds

No brakes will work well with those tires. Anything over 2.3 is just like a cock measuring contest. They feel like sh*t too.

The mission cease are pretty wide, they came on my complete with 2.4 tires and I'm pretty sure they'll clear .05 more tire. I'll have to look to be sure, but they're set up for wide tires. Cheap too $17Photo

I'm currently using the Mission Reflex U-brake with a 2.3" WLT slammed on my Tall Boy and I don't think I'd have any problems fitting a 2.5" if I wanted.

I know you don't live in the US, but for people that do Dan's Comp still has the Reflex brake on sale for $17, which is pretty damn good for a 6061 forged U-brake.

I have 2.40 with Odyssey Springfield and they are really nice but if you move the brake pads after a while they squeal really loud.

Run your bed tires cuz they're sick at. Ignore the naysayers run the bike how you want to! Besides that I don't have experience with brakes so I'm not sure which ones would fit.

You don't need brakes when you run stupidly big tires like that , they're to slow and sluggish to achieve decent speed and they work like airbags when you crash into stuff , brakes are pointless with tires that big
