I currently own a Shorter Frame where the brakes are attached to threads that are welded onto the frame. The brakes I have are old campag brakes and I want to enquire what type/model I have? I am looking to replace these brakes and whether you all can give me advice and suggestions on where I can find another set of these or anything else that is compatible?
THANKS in advance!
Those look to be from the Victory/Triomphe groupset for which the original holders/pads have disappeared. Is there something mechanically not right with them ? Why not replace the pads with Koolstops - they will improve considerably. http://www.koolstop.com/english/super_record.html
Nothing wrong with them but just some of the bolts and nuts a bit rusty after years of cycling and also wanting to know what I need to get if I wanted some new brakes....
Do you have any ideas/suggestions advice on what brakes that can work with the frame? I'm having some difficulty trying to find ones that suit this frame...
If as you say the pivot assembly is brazed to the frame and forks then I think you'll have to stay with what you have.
My 70's TT bike has brazed on brake bolts like those, only mine are for Weinmann 500.
Campag kept the same brake bolts for quite a while so you should be OK with most 70's to 80's campag of the same reach. Trying to remember if Shimano had the same threads and I think they had.
Thanks both user 50330 and midlife!!!
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
