ProsLook good. Good price, good breaking, traditional looks
I have been restoring a Jack Taylor tour of Britain. The brakes were fragile. I decided to use modern brakes that had a traditional look. After many emails with sjs, who have been excellent, I decided on these. They fit in with the character of the bike and provide amply breaking.

Can I Use This With Gilles Berthoud Fenders?
02 Jun 2017
Witch dimension Tyres will work with these brakes.
I have i singelspeed frame / fork with Caliper mounts.
Will 35 mm or wider tyres (700c) fit?

And if so is it even possible to fit a pair of Gilles Berthoud fenders?
The frame can easily fit 50 or even 60 mm fenders.


These are caliper brakes which almost always have a maximum tyre size of around 32mm, you may be able to squeeze 35mm tyres in them but it is unlikely. This also means that you would not be able to fit a set of mudguards through unless you were running deep drop brakes and a narrow guard.

Mount As A Nutted Not Flush Mounted?
13 Mar 2017
Building up an older Bob Jackson and need nutted brakes. Can these be so used.

These brakes use a unique fitting system that allows them to fit to bikes that require either recessed or nutted fittings so these brakes can be used with your bike.

Do These Brakes Require Bosses Fitted On The Frame?
10 Apr 2014
I am aware some center pull calipers can be fitted with a single center mount, are these similar. If not what modifications are required to a frmae to fit these?

These brakes are compatible with a centre mount fixing, they come supplied with the bolt & spacers that will enable them to be fitted this way.


Diacompe Grand Compe 610 Brake Pads
31 Jan 2014

Can you please help me with a question? I have this brakes. I need new brakepads for carbon rims. Could you please give me som sugestions och what brakepads and holders that fit this brake? Many thanks and cheers!

Any of the Shimano cartridges or the Shimano compatible cartridges will fit those brakes. The Swissstop Flash Pro Yellow's are the only carbon specific cartridge sets that come with the correct pads. All other options will involve buying a set of cartridge pads and then buying a set of carbon replaceable inserts separately. There are a few different carbon specific inserts available from Shimano, KoolStop and Swissstop.
