Comments about Nashbar Caliper Road Bike Brakeset:

Rear brake is a bit squishy. Not as strong or light as ultregra, but better than I expected, and better than previous Tektro brake calipers I've used.

Comments about Nashbar Caliper Road Bike Brakeset:

Used these to replace an old Dia-Comp set on my 80's road steed. Solid, affordable upgrade for old single-pivot brakes. Fit great, with much more adjustability than the old ones. I highly recomend as an upgrade.

just as good

    Comments about Nashbar Caliper Road Bike Brakeset:

    I replaced an old Dura Ace 7700 set with these, and they work as good or better. The only negative is the cheaper cable fixing bolt. It will rust if you don't clean it frequently, but how much trouble is that?

    Good BR-7700 Copy

    from Hell, USA

    About Me Avid Cyclist

    Pros

    • Not Light
    • Stiff - friction

    Best Uses

    Comments about Nashbar Caliper Road Bike Brakeset:

    Tektro makes several versions of dual pivot brakes. I believe all are Shimano copies. Too bad none are at their caliper but they don't cost $400/set either. This set I believe is their best effort. Dura Ace 7700 is known to be a bit flexy due to the weight reduction efforts. One key feature that was not copied is the ball bearing main pivot. This new set feels stiff. Not sure would a few drops of lube help but what else can you do. Great value at the "sale" price, still. Recommended.

    Comments about Nashbar Caliper Road Bike Brakeset:

    The first review put me off these brakes, but my budgetary constraints convinced me otherwise. Turns out these are pretty good brakes, especially for the price -- smooth operation, easy to install (one turn of the centering screw and they were perfect)!

    The stock pads are OK...but a simple swap to salmon pads is worthwhile and greatly beneficial.

    Comments about Nashbar Caliper Road Bike Brakeset:

    I've actually only used the front brake so far on my single speed. Plenty of stopping power to stop my 200lb butt from full speed, and yes I ride fast. Didn't notice any play in pivot, brake shudder was, for all intensive purposes, non-existent. Overall a good brake for the money, even for twice the money. Only downside I see is they are somewhat heavy.
