Hey everyone, so my bike currently has a v brake set up on the front wheel and I would like to change it to this caliper style brake as i think a vbrake is a lil on the jenky said lol. I was reading up a Lil about it and I think it said something about having to have a certain style lever with it along with a different brake cable, so I just want to be sure what is I need to do or have in order to run these brakes, that is if it's possible. Thanks everyone, I appreciate all advice and knowledge in advance as I'm still learningratm. THANKS- Chris

Go to a reputable bicycle shop. They should be able to get you the components that'll best work with your bike.
