I've been curious about using one of these sweet classic Dia Compe MX brakes on the front of a Florida Man in an attempt to reach a 650b rim. Well, it works! So here is the end result of my experimentation.
If you want, we can take the the rack and bag off and deduct their cost from the price of the bike, just write that you'd like to do so in the order notes and we will refund you the amount. ($485)
Here's what all we've got going on here:
58cm Florida Man frameset
Crust Nullarbar 50cm/31.8/Polished
60mm SimWorks Wendy Stem
Dia Campe MX-1000 Front Brake
170mm Sugino RD-2 Crankset w/ 113mm IRD BB
42-17t Gearing w/ Surly Track cog
Schwalbe Thunder Burt 27.5x2.1"
Custom Wheelset- 32h Velocity Quill Rims laced to Surly Ultra New hubs Front and Rear
