Consnot manufactered perfectly
Prosworks ok and cheap
Very good value for money, but not the absolute highest quality dual pivots - you get what you pay for.
The quibble was that both arms weren't manufactured parallel hence we needed to gently bend one in a vice, this then enabled us to move the brake pads to the top of the slot to just reach a 57mm drop, on a 70's Dawes galaxy.
It was obvious the manufacturing wasn't quite spot on, but often brakes may need tweaking.

How much clearance do these have?
07 Apr 2021
How much tire clearance does these brakes offer. Would there be enough space in them for 35-40mm tyre for example?
Thank you for your enquiry, 35mm should be fine

Spare adjusting bolt?
18 Apr 2018
I cannot find a product in sjs for the adjusting bolt as mine has sheared. Is one available?
Hi there,

Unfortunately we do not have any direct spares for this brake, it would be worth popping to your local bike shop with the brake and seeing if it can be matched to anything.

Can these be used, or is there a simple adaption for bottom cable entry?
26 Jul 2017
I'm looking for some replacements for standard calipers on my raleigh twenty commuter bike. I thought I would upgrade to dual pivot ones and these seem to be of the correct reach. The problem is that the rear caliper has the cable entry from the underside, not the top of the caliper. As the adjuster for the cable seems to be cast into the caliper there seems to be no way to convert to a bottom cable entry (without some engineering!)
Are you aware of a simple way to deal with the problem, or are there any alternative calipers that may offer the option of bottom cable entry?
Many thanks in advance.

Unfortunately these cannot be converted to have the cable enter from the bottom and we don't have any brakes that can with the correct amount of drop I'm afraid.
