WTD: Long reach rear road caliper

by formereve   January 1, 2013  

Hi Guys Im after a long reach rear road caliper Shimano preferably. Im using tektro brakes at the mo and the rear one has seized up so would prefer not to use this brand if poss. If you have a pair of calipers even better but one will be fine.

Tektro brand is fine, though some factory fitted/budget models don't have much power. R359 and R539 are good without being expensive, both single caliper and pairs appear on ebay regularly.
