Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing! These brakes are excellent. Great stopping power. I am using them on a hybrid road bike with flatbars on which I have MTB brake levers that are underpowered and I can stop the bike in no time! I cannot image how they will work if I will use the proper lever ratio. One small negative is that the centering alignment screw comes lose after some time but you can use some Loctite 243 to fix it. Design is top as well. Price is perfect. Definitely recommended! 11 January 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Stabile and strong Switching from a Shimano 105 brakeset to a SRAM Force brakeset, made a world of difference!! Switching from SRAM Force to these, was hardly noticeable... Stabile, responsive and strong. Very good control with the impressing amount af breaking power. I did not know what to expect, but at this price, I consider theese to be a great value for money brakeset. Be aware that the release mechanism is built into the STI and therefore these should be mated to Campag STI's only. 30 August 2012

Hi guys

Can you please recommend a brake lever that will work for this brakeset? I'm intending to run them on a flat bar single speed, so no shift pod required.

Any advice you can provide will be a great help!

Cheers

Answer: 
While we don't currently have any Campagnolo flat bar levers (other than the dual control Veloce), you should be fine to use any regular flat bar brake lever such as the Shimano versions listed below

How long is the bolt that goes through the frame or fork? And can it be changed for a longer one if need be?
Also does the length of the through bolt vary from front to back, how long is each if so?

Thanks to advance!

Answer: 
The front brake runs a 28mm mounting bolt, while the rear runs a 14mm. The brakes are supplied with a selection of sunken nuts (12mm, 15mm, 21mm & 28mm) to accomodate all common frame/ fork sizes.

Answer: 
These Centaur brakes have a brake-pad height adjustment from 40-50 mm (measured from brake fixing-bolt to brake-shoe-nut).
For a 57mm reach you will need a long reach brake such as the R539 (below)
