There is a reason why a majority cyclo-cross, tandem, recumbent and sticker-laden courier bike in the country has Shorties on it--because they work well and our time proven.

    These work well on my commuter, good stopping power and simple to install. They proved to be mediocre on my cross bike providing poor stopping power and serious fork shudder. I do not recommend them for your cross bike. I would try TRP v brakes instead.

    Pros light and cheap

    Cons poor stopping power in cross conditions
