Overall Product Rating 3 / 5
Adequate and great for the price but with caveats

I recommend this product
ConsSoft metal, blocks are nutted and of low quality
ProsCheap, hex key fitting, quick release, wide drop range.
I bought these for an old Raleigh I am updating, they are hex key fitting and have the required drop so at £8.99 they seemed like a bargain.

They look well made but after approx 50 miles I noticed the metal on the caliper arms had become chewed up where the brake blocks fit meaning I had to file this down to get smooth drop adjustment. Also the brake blocks themselves are nutted instead of hex fitting and are of poor quality, I swapped these out for some cheap hex fit blocks with removable inserts an they now perform much better.

Now I have some perfectly adequate brakes which look nice and have all the functionality I need but the overall spend has crept up. done another 120 miles on them without issue so YMMV.

Can I convert these with Jtek Shimano Pattern 70 mm Dual Pivot Brake Bolt Cr-Mo for Nut Conversion?
10 May 2020
Thanks for your recent reply. Will the "Jtek Shimano Pattern 70 mm Dual Pivot Brake Bolt Cr-Mo for Nut Conversion, your part 24266", allow me to convert these brakes to fit my frame or is that only compatible with Shimano & Tektro brakes?
Hi, sorry we don't know if these brakes can be converted. We do know it works with Shimano and Tektro. Thanks
Suitable for non-countersunk frame & fork?
08 May 2020
I'm looking to replace the old single pivot Weinmann calipers on an old Raleigh frame.
I need 57mm from brake fixing to centre of rim so these seem suitable.
But the frame will require them to be fitted with a nylock nut to replace the supplied nuts as my fittings are not countersunk. I need at least 45mm bolt length on the front brake and 25mm on the rear.
Will these be suitable? And how long are the bolts for each brake please?
Many thanks
HI, the bolts are only 30 mm and 15 mm because they rely on the brake pivot nut to gain the extra length. The Jtek Shimano Pattern 70 mm Dual Pivot Brake Bolt Cr-Mo for Nut Conversion our part 24266 will allow you to convert a pair of Shimano or Tektro allen key dual pivot brakes to fit. Thanks
Do these have enough clearance...
25 Nov 2019
... for a 19mm wide rim (about 25mm between braking surfaces)?
Hi there,

Unfortunately, it does not look as though these will have enough clearance I'm afraid.

Can I have these in silver/unpainted?
25 Nov 2019
... if you have it in stock, that is.
We just have black,
Thanks - 25/11/19
