Comments about Nashbar Road Bike Cartridge Brake Shoe/pad Set:
Bought these because they look great. The Shimano shoes are very expensive and these holder+pads are just a bit more than the Shimano pads alone. The holders seem to be forged AL alloy, not cheap sheet metal. Looks great on my old Dura Ace BR-7403 dual pivots. Yes, the original bomb-proofed and heavy Dura Ace dual pivot brakes.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
