I have a question Huh
i want to buy Rear Disc Brake Kit - Wide 5

CBperf' is good because it's not cheap but it is performant???

I'm sure the CB kit is OK but I've not had one though they have a sale on at the moment which is making them stupid cheap. As for the CSP one, I bought a front set up a while back and the quality of the kit you get can't be faulted.

CB are cheap in the US, but how much here in Belgium or France?  It's about 200€ to ship them here and you will have to pay customs charges Undecided
CSP are really good. And readily available to your local shop.  Wink

empi disck brake rear


Is the braking distance now shorter?
Do the brakes feel 'sharper' than before?

Thanks
