Default Pace RC200 F2

My project for the winter, an English east coast bike. For those that don't know, Pace were hand built in Yorkshire, from externally butted 7000 series aluminium frames. Mocked up in the pics with what I have lying around, and the Hope hubbed wheels from my Yo Eddy. Pace was a dream bike when I was young, just like the Yo.

Is there a benefit to having the brake studs mounted on the rear of the fork?

As the wheel rotates that way, its rotation pushes the brakes into the structuraly stronger fork legs, instead of trying to pull the brake mounts out of them. That's the theory anyway...
