    Can anyone recommend a rear brake (high quality) for my beach cruiser?

    There is a drill out in the middle, & looking for a standard caliper style - but do want a good one.

    Also - a good place to buy it too -- general searches on Amazon, don't bring up a whole lot of good stuff.

    Caliper brakes are poor at stopping but better than nothing. I was an adapter plate for putting V brakes onto that drilled hole. Now THAT is a great idea. V brakes rock.

    Can you share how you did it? Also where to get the parts?

    Maybe you have a pic?

    Free calipers

    You should check dumpsters at apt. complexes and garage sales and try to salvage a set from a junker. I did got a few extra parts also.
