It has a rake of 40 mm. I know there's the track standard (35) and then there's 43 and 45 mm.

what made you want to slap some brakes on?
only noticed because you were riding brakeless with the bare knuckle and this for the longest

is it because youre getting used to your clip less pedals?

Rushing says:

No, I have rode clipless without brakes for a while. But since my recent accident (on Arpil 2nd), I figured I would get some brakes in an emergency and to ease up on my legs. Actually, the accident is a bit ironic.

Normally on April Fool's, I would call into work and joke about how I got hit on my bike and can't work today. But I didn't do that this year and I got hit on my bike the next day.
