I have a wethepeople reason 2012 frame and run BSD Donnasqueak 2.25 on the back. Can anyone recommend a brake that will fit? Also does anyone know if the fly manual or the odyssey evo 2/2.5 Will fit and if they are good choices?
Thanks for taking the time to read

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but nobody knows , looks like you’ll have to wing it to find out , I’m going to guesstimate yes

With a 2.25" any brake should fit, and it should fit your frame fine too

Get an Odyssey EVO 2.5.

It clears my 2.5 tires pretty easy...

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

Fly kinda ruined their reputation(at least, I think) by making parts way too lightweight with no proper reinforcement. I had a Fly Montana frame that shit the bed in like 4 weeks. I really like their team and I'm starting to like some of the parts they're putting out again but it'd have to be truly exceptional for me to trust a Fly part again.

Same same but different. How many people manage to snap or bend brake arms?

I'm not a brake guy; I've never had a build with brakes on it. Everyone has a personal favourite brake setup as far as I can tell; I'd say go with the cheaper one: I've heard great things about both.

Pick any brake you like as long as it’s CNC or forged. Don’t go so cheap that it’s cast, they’re not so solid feeling.

I've heard a lot of good things about the EVO 2.5 and it gives you some flexibility if you ever decide to fit fatter tyres in the future.

EDIT: Just realised you already purchased an EVO 2.5, disregard this post grin
