ProsA great upgrade for an older bike, especially if you want to use 700c wheels
I bought these to fit to a Raleigh frame built for 27" wheels in which I am using 700c wheels. They work great, and look great, and I didn't have to drill the frame.
Very pleased indeed!
Just what I needed

ProsDon’t have to drill your frame.
I bought these to improve the brakes on a classic road bike without having to drill the frame. That improvement is excellent and they look good too.

I got these to replace the old and corroded brakes on my 80s peugeot frame. They fitted perfect, and gave a massive improvement in braking performance! Would highly recommend them.
Questions & Answers (7)
Hi There, will these calipers reach a 700c rim in a frame built for 27" wheels?
By

You would simply need to measure up the arm length needed or test fit the brakes, we do not have a suitable mule to test these on unfortunately.

Thanks
Is there another model with more mudguard clearance?
By
23 Jan 2018
I bought these to install on my road bike which has SKS chromoplastic mudguards and have found there's not enough clearance and the mudguard is pushed onto the tire. The brake drop is about 47mm. Is there a model of brake with a 47mm drop and more clearance around the tire?
Hi there,

Generally this is quite a common issue and we are not aware of a particular brake that allows for more mudguard room.

We have seen some modifications to the mudguard area that sits underneath the brake caliper.

Thanks
I'M Curios As To Why This Nut And Bolt Version Comes With No Brake Shoes, But Single Use Pads?
By
15 Oct 2016
The recessed nut version of the R539 comes with proper brake shoes. Can such be mounted to this version? Also the barrel adjuster is different. Are the two versions identical otherwise, build quality etc?
Hi,

The R539 and R359 are different models at different price points, hence why the R359 have basic quality blocks and the R539 have a higher quality sprung cable adjuster. The brake block fittings are identical so you could easily upgrade the blocks on the R359 to a set with replaceable inserts.

Thanks.
Do These Brakes Come With The Shaped Spacers To Fit The Rear Bridge And Front Forks?
By

If not, can you supply the spacers?
Hi,

These spacers are indeed supplied with the brakes.

Thanks.

Is black color also available?
Hi,

Unfortunately we can only get hold of these brakes in silver.

Thanks.
How Long Is The Bolt On These Brakes? Thanks
By
07 Apr 2014
Hi,

With the spacers removed and measured from the back of the brake to the end of the bolt, the rear bolt is 29mm long and the front is 47mm long.

Thanks.
