I'm restoring/refurbishing a Raleigh Record Ace and have just received my frame back from the spray shop. It was only at this late stage that I realised I hadn't asked them to add a set of bottle cage mounts. In the meantime, I'd bought at great expense a Campag Borraccia Biodinamica bottle & cage. Now I have no way of attaching one to t'other.
Unless, of course, Road CC members know otherwise??
I just wanted to report a very positive experience with the Altenburger alloy centre pull dual pivot brakes that were commonly fitted to Raleigh and other 10 speeds made in the 1970s.
I've recently restored my old 1976 Raleigh Record (14kg of steel..) and as part of that replaced the rusty steel rims with new alloy rims. I decided to keep the old Altenburger alloy brakes for authenticity and because they still worked, but swapped out the pads and blocks with Ultegra cartridge pads and standard pads.
