Avid Code - Front and rear the same?
I'm looking at some Avid Code brakes online and was ready to order when I noticed they only sell 'front'. Are the front and rear brakes different or can I buy 2 fronts and use for either end of the bike? If there is a difference what is it? Length of brake line? Anything else?
The front and rear calipers are exactly the same. The levers are ambidextrous, so they are also the same. Front and rear have different hose lengths. Front and rear also use different adapters.
will nailed it...
since the brakes you are looking at are "postmount only" according to the page, you will need to buy adaptors anyway if your fork is IS (and for the rear for sure)... so the only "extra cost" of buying 2 fronts could be the longer hose and the adapters, as Will said...
