the one thing to watch out with fly brakes is there are 3 different types

suelo- front specific, will work on rear but cable will pop out now and again
(this happens with my mates)

chainstay- arms are angled upwards so can only really be used on chainstay mounts

seatstay-slightly angled, only really ment be used on seatstay mounts

agree 990's are excellent and work very well. I just fancied some thing more bling and bit lighter. The Proper bikes is very good. Will be getting a Fly soon.
