      Comments about Avid Single Digit 5 Brake 2011:

      These are very nice brakes for the money, quality manufacturing and quality parts. I have been happy with all of the Avid products I have used over the years.

      When setup on narrow rims 20mm the springs are barley long enough so they don't slip off the posts on the arm when squeezed to the rim. They were never designed to be used on such narrow rims though. Once adjusted they work perfectly, the pad material does not rub off on the rims as the originals did and the braking action is smooth and feels better.

      I needed to upgrade the brakes on a Diamondback Clarity 1 I am seting up for my 11 year old son. This is one of the few 700c womens bikes with a short enough stand over height that does not look like a girls bike. I cannot afford to purchase him an expensive bike now. With an old spare set of narrow race wheels/tires on it he can now keep up a great pace and he likes to go fast.

        There are lighter brakes on the market, but I am not into racing and a little extra weight does not matter.

          Comments about Avid Single Digit 5 Brake 2011:

          I bought these to replace the stock brakes that were just too beat up to be relied on, the installation for both front and rear took maybe 11 minutes, set my cable tension and I was on the road within 15 minutes; the diference in stopping power is simply amazing, I tested them on a nearby bridge and under some pretty good speed, I came to a complete halt in a very short distance, the back tire skidded a bit but the performance since then ...I cannot complain.

          Buy them.

              Upgraded from Canti brakes on an older Giant mtb that my daughter uses on the road. These brakes are a huge improvement and did not break the bank.

                    The best [$] I've ever spent on my girlfriend - took them out of the box, slapped them on her rig, and now feel comfortable knowing she'll be able to stop. Great price, great brand, great looking. Little initial adjustment. Just a simple, cheap solution to v-braking needs.

                    I replaced the stock Tektro V-brakes on my main commuter bike with these. It made a small but noticeable difference in braking power and modulation. Just feels a bit more solid and controlled. These are a great value for the price.

                    The Tektros weren't bad, I just put them on my backup bike, replacing the weak-sauce cantilever brakes that were original.
