Vintage Campag Brake Question

Posted on
  • Hi All,

    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.Ā­cord.html

  • Thanks user50330,

    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!!!
