    Brake Booster on Arch Rivals

    Just bought some Arch Rivals and wondering if A brake Booster would even do that much because of the Arch of the Brake, or has anyone ever put a Brake Booster on the Avid Arch Rivals? Will it even fit? Thinking about the Salsa Carbon Fiber Arc. Thanks.

    The arch on your Arch Rivals is not a booster. It's only to locate the brake pads, and is hinged at the center (ie where a brake booster concentrates the force). You can run a Salsa, if you really need one, but may have to shim the outside of the Avid bearing to avoid binding the booster against the brake arm.
