          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.

                  Not Quite Long Reach

                        If you want stronger braking over old style single pivot brakes for the money these are hard to beat! I bought 2 pairs of front caliphers to use on the rear of older steel frames. The front brakes longer mount bolt allow you to install the brake without drilling
                        your frame. You reuse your mounting hardware from the old brake and swap the brakepads left to right.
                        My only problem was the reach of these to the rim. They are shorter than stated under specifications with a max reach of only about 55-57mm.

                            While these brakes are longer-than-the-average-road-brake, make sure that if you are converting an older 26" wheel bike with fenders (such as the lady-type bike I was refinishing for my wife)that you find the RIGHT length for the bike. These were too short for the bike I was restoring. I ended up ordering their brakes that have a 55-73mm reach. The 55-73mm brakes fit perfectly on the bike I was working on.
                            This is an awesome product. The brakes are lightweight, easy to install and have great stopping power. Just make sure that you order brakes that are long enough to reach for the bike you are working on!
