I’ve finally pulled the trigger on my new frame. The final piece in my build

I’ve been looking into brake options as I hear the Evo 2 can have clearance issues with wider rears and tyres over 2.2?

Kink desist seems popular but I can’t seem to find it over here in UK. I have found odyssey’s new Evo 2.5, which seems solve the known issues with the 2.

Anyone running these have any words of wisdom?

I'd like to know this as well! I have the evo2 and love the setup. The other day I saw adamnmexican post about the evo2.5 and meant to ask him about it. In for answers.

It's not just for fat tyres, I believe it's for frames that are wide enough to fit fat tyres.

Hmmm

It's probably going to be a couple weeks before I swoop one up, but I'll let you know.

This. Wider tyres and short chainstays mean the stays have to be wider where the mounts are (which a lot of people overlook).
The 2.5 is designed specifically for frames with wider tyre clearance
