Hi,

what is the real brake drop on the Kinesis racelight TK3 frame (now called 4S)? I understand that it depends a bit on the rims, so what rims do you use?

what is the real brake drop on the Kinesis Tracer 1.5 fork?

Thank you
Andreas

A good question, sorry I don't know the exact measurements but have a TK3 frame and Tracer fork that I've just finished a winter build and the Miche 'long drop' brakes I had from an old bike don't seem to be quite right, especially at the rear.

I def can't get the pad centered on the rim, I've ordered some Tektro ones from Ribble that claim a max drop of 59mm over the 57mm of the Miche so I'm hopefully that will work.

I quite fancied the new TRP long drop brakes I saw on road cc but can't justify the ££!

Hi,

I'd like to ask you to measure the reach. Here's how:

I have some lightly used long drop tektro brakes that came off a T2. Would be prepared to sell if you are interested.
