Got a similar set of those Modolo brakes myself (mine are an older version without the "Rocky" logo or the adjustment on the pad holder height) - decent stoppers if you choose the right kind of pads, and work well with drop-bar levers unlike more modern low-profile cantis. Can be a pain in the bum to set up, though, especially if using the original Modolo yokes and straddle cables!

All finished now,in fact it's been my daily rider for a month or so,I'm really thrilled with it,handles great,on and off road always holds it's line,came into it's own in the snow :D .

This is probably the only supercross with bottle gages ,unlike hard nut cross riders ,I need a little energy drinky to get me home.The gages are attached to the frame with 'riv-nuts',basically threaded rivets.
Looks like it's going to snow tomorrow,can't wait
:D
