Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent brakes for older style bikes Before I fitted these brakes, the V-brakes on my old Dawes Galaxy had proved so useless (as well as squeaking terribly, a problem no mechanic was able to fix) that I was thinking of giving up on the bike altogether. However, I got talking to another cyclist, who pointed to the Tektro brakes on his own Dawes, and explained that, because of the specially deeper drop, they could reach the rims of an older style bike. Up till then, I thought I was stuck with V-brakes, but now I was able to swap them for caliper brakes (I think that's what they are), and the bike's braking ability has not only been transformed, but the constant squeaking has vanished. Many thanks indeed to that cyclist for the tip! 17 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good brakes I used Brakeset to replace the old Weinmann on Staiger TRENTO. These brakes work better than original, even it can be used with V-brake lever. 03 September 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by retro bike upgrade I used these to replace the Weinmann caliper brakes on a vintage road bike. If you've updated an old bike with new wheels then chances are you've had to adjust the brakes to near their full extent of drop and and if like me you're trying to use old Weinmann 730 brakes then you'll never be able to achieve the braking efficiency of a modern setup. To go with the upgrade of faster wheels I needed better braking, queue the search for modern brakes that have suitable drop. These are one of the few options available and the price is very reasonable. They also come in the nutted fitting rather than the recessed fitting, which means they fit in the same way as the old Weinmanns without the need for any modification to the frame. The swap was easy but like all modern brakes the cable entry is from the other side to that of vintage Weinmanns. That's not really an issue and just means a bit of cable routing around the rear of a vintage bike. The brakes look the part, they have the form and function of modern calipers and similar dimensions to the originals on the bike, so you'll keep the overall line, dimensions and clearance for the widest of mudguards. Stronger more rigid brakes means the lever pressure gets to the brake pads, at last I can stop my vintage singlespeed conversion as quickly as my modern roadie. The pads supplied could probably be better but they are in cartridges so could easily be swapped out if your preference is for more grippy pads. 19 August 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good Long Reach Brake These work great if you have a bike that requires a longer reach brake or are converting a bike from 700C to 650B wheels. The calipers are designed not only for longer reach but to give better clearance on mud guard/fenders similar products by Shimano. 28 February 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Opção perfeita para híbridas Adquiri os freios R556 (idênticos ao R559) para adaptar rodas 700c num quadro de mountain bike (Parkpre Scepter Comp) e o resultado não poderia ter sido melhor. Os freios tem ótimo poder de frenagem mesmo utilizando-se manetes para v-brake. A construção é esmerada e mesmo depois de milhares de km não surgiram folgas ou problemas. Recomendo plenamente. 09 February 2012

Max tyre size with these calipers

Can you tell me the biggest size tyre and rim that will work with these without rubbing on the arms? I'm not concerned about the biggest tyre allowed as far as the quick release is concerned. Thanks.
