  • Would it be weird to have flat mount brakes on the front fork and post mount on the rear dropouts?

    awkward with pads etc

  • what do you mean? in what sense awkward with pads?
    I am thinking about Paul’s klampers, which come in both versions

  • Most flat mount brakes have smaller, different pads to the post mount version.

    So you would need two sets of spares.. maybe that’s not awkward to anyone else.

    In our house all bikes are aligned, road bikes are hope hubs, Shimano 11 speed with the same bbs and headsets etc.

    We have a tandem and touring bike, identical wheels brakes and drivechain. - also partly due to when the tandem is outgrown I have a spare surly frameset to build onto.

    Love the klampers but why not go hydraulic for that money?
