Rated 5 out of 5 by MAttZ Brilliant brakes, pads not so much.
I bought these to replace the ones that came with my commuter road bike. The difference is massive and I am quite happy with their performance. I did notice that the pads they come with aren't very good, but nothing that a quick browse in CRC won't change.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bigmal As good as anything to be frank
At the end of the day it's the pads that make the big difference in braking. Put Swiss stop green in here and you have a brake that feels as good as any high end one.

Good quality, easy to fit, very well packaged. Braking performance very good and cleaning made easy as black paint covers up missed bits!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous great brakeset
bought these to replace the crappy unbranded calipers that came on my gt series four. they look so much better than the ones that i took off and the braking power is so much better, these were the best value branded brakeset on chainreactions and im delighted with them. highly recommended,look much more expensive than they were, GREAT BUY............

The thing is, i orderd in the past campagnolo brakes for road bicycle and the brake screw didn't go throught my front fork hole for brake. I need a screw with at least 50mm lenght. Has this brake a screw with at least 50mm lenght? I'd like to buy it if yes. My bicycle is a Barracuda Mens Vivante.Thanks
Attached is a picture where you guys can see what i mean. Thanks
