I've really liked the normal reach version of these brakes on a couple of road bikes, and I had an old steel frame I was going to use to build a new bike. I thought these would be a great replacement for some questionable Dia-Comp single pull brakes, and they definitely have a lot more stopping power! All of the adjustments are exactly what I'm used to and they stay centered.

I do have two issues with them, though.

1) on the Miyata frame I used, the rear brake cable is designed to be on the right, so I had to be slightly creative with the rear brake cable around the seat post.

2) the left pad seems farther forward than the right pad on both calipers. The calipers appear straight, and it seems like something I should be able to adjust, but I haven't been able to get them lined up. The still seem to be braking/wearing evenly, so not a big deal.

This is the second... maybe third time I've replaced old Dia Compe parts on super old Schwinns. My girlfriend recently got a sexy new around town ride with original brakes. I replaced the brakes, levers, and lines and she's much more confident on her bike. Just make sure you measure the distance between the caliper center bolt and the arm reach before you buy. These have tons of room (55 to 73 mm) but you want to make sure you get it right before you order.

It's a huge upgrade to what came with my '83 Schwinn Le Tour. Here's why:

1. Braking power is on point. I got dangerously close to flying over my handlebars on several occasions.
2. The spring rating is perfect. In comparison to the original hardware, my brake levers now are soft as butta.
3. The reach is long enough for me to upgrade to 700c tires which dramatically extends the life of the bike.
4. Like most well-crafted components, these puppies are lovely to stare at. (check out attached photo)

10/10 will buy again for my other '80s steel frame.

Replaces a pair of older DiaCompte long reach. Difference is Night and Day!. I was getting ready to sell or give away a classic Dawes Galaxy because I couldn't find replacement brakes that would fit and work. I switched from the original 27" to 700C wheels and getting brakes to fit was a problem - before I found these. They look great and the price was right. The easy-open feature was a definite plus because I run 700x28 tires in the winter and the extra clearance helps make it easier to switch between them and my normal 700x25. Great product.

I received a Nutted pair as described, for a vintage bike, and was pleased. These brakes are attractive and effective. I used them for an IS0590 conversion on a 700c road bike with room to spare, and they worked well. I also tried them with ISO590 wheels on a 27" road bike, and the reach was maxed out. I could also feel a difference in braking power, but it wasn't too bad.

Turned my old 1980's road bike from a death-trap into a safe, reliable bicycle with excellent stopping power. I am amazed at how well they work!

I replaced some 36 year old Wieman center pulls with these. They work great, are much more adjustable, well made and look great.

These brakes are awesome! I purchased them to replace old center pull cantilever brakes on my vintage 70's era Nishiki road bike. These are the "nutted" version and I had 0 fitment issues when installing onto my old frame/fork. The threaded studs were the right length and included a dab of blue loctite on them to keep things tight. I REALLY like the quick release lever on these which make them super easy to open up when changing a tire or doing work on the bike. The mechanical advantage on these brakes is also amazing when laced up to some new cane creek levers.The old brakes just had a lot of play and stretch before they started to grab but these bite quick and hard. I'm no small guy and I have no worries now about stopping. I foresee these brakes lasting a long time and have given my old bike a new lease on life!
