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.

Do these have enough clearance...

... 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.

Thanks.
Can I have these in silver/unpainted?
