The Motolite is here to stay. The design of this product is so nearly perfect that there is no foreseeable reason to ever change it. The pivot mechanism has an excellent track record (first used in 1990), the quick-release (releasing the cable for wheel changes) works so well, and is so simple the only reason it isn't widely copied is because Shimano doesn't use it
Do you want to put 1 3/8" (mini) wheels on your standard BMX frame? How about 700c wheels on your mountain bike? These brakes are the answer. Our unique pad mounting system made it easy to offer this variation. In both cases a short reach lever is recommended. Drop bar levers work great too. By removing the large scallop on the front of the arm on the Motolite, we made it so that the collar can easily slide up the arm another two centimeters. With this one exception, these brakes happily share all the same features as the MotoliteZ. Important: When you convert from a 26" to a 700c, drop levers will work fine, but if you go back to 26", drop levers are absolutely not recommended for use with these brakes; in this case you must use a long-pull lever. k
