I've pretty much always ridden brakeless, but recently I've been considering throwing on some brakes just to open up some new tricks to learn. I pretty much don't know anything about brakes, so what would any of you recommend for a set of brakes? Obviously I'm looking for something that will stop well, but I'd also prefer something that's not obnoxiously loud.

Anything Odyssey, I'd recommend just the complete springfield set.

I hated these. Couldnt adjust tension at all by design, spring broke, pads didn't work so well either and were also unadjustable. Any brake that's made to make installation "easier" just kinda sucks to run. OP just get some EvoII's or any decent alloy U brake with actual springs from a good company. And Kool Stop pads.

If you do go EVO and your rear end is designed to fit a 2.4"/+ tire you want the EVO 2.5.

I had zero issues with my Springfields, other than they are sloppy on the posts. I think I swapped out the pads though....


The EVO brakes are great too. Any brake can be set up to work well.
