      Comments about Nashbar Long Reach Road Brake Caliper:

      I found these calipers when I was putting together an old (1981) steel roadbike with modern components. I had a set of modern 105 calipers, but they didn't have the required reach. I did some research and found the Nashbar Long Reach calipers and they worked perfectly for my application. I used two front calipers, as I needed a long stud for the rear to work with the old brake bridge. Great product! And they stop well :-)

            Comments about Nashbar Long Reach Road Brake Caliper:

            I bought these brakes for my 1980 Schwinn that was converted to 700c. They worked perfectly. The catch was they are made for the recessed nut, not the older traditional nut that I have on the back of my bike. My front fork has been updated and it worked great. I took a chance and ordered a front brake for the rear to get a longer bolt for the older style nut. It worked perfectly. If you go this route, just make sure to flip the pads around on the rear. The reach isn't so long, but is exactly as advertised in the description. Measure your bikes and do your research before you review things poorly for being exactly as advertised.

                  The brakes are of good quality. Not long enough for 2 80's French bikes I've upgraded to 700 wheels. I'll use the brakes because they are are well made and affordable with home made drop mounts.

                    I installed these on a 2012 Trek 1.5 road bike. They work better than the original brake calipers. I did replace the pads with Kool Stop Dura 2 pads, so I can't comment on the quality of the included pads. Excellent modulation and stopping power. Recommended if you need to replace long reach calipers.

                        Used these brakes to convert 80s steel 10 speed to 700c. Previously had Shimano Sora on the same bike with 27". I feel the same stopping power. Quick release levers don't help with getting wheels off (they would probably be enough for road tires, but I'm running cx 30c). Great price for the product. I highly recommend Nashbar products to anyone on a budget.

                          I bought these several months ago but only recently had the chance to finally finish the project bike that they were originally purchased for.

                          Replaced a cheap pair of center pivot brake calipers, made a world of difference. Reach is just right, solid feel, vast improvement over the original calipers.

                          If I ever get new rims, I might get some upgraded shoes/pads, but for this bike, they're a very good fit.
