Hey everyone, I recently bought a Raleigh Super Course, and I was wondering what everybody's take is on upgrading the brakes to either a new set of tektro brakes or some shimano 600s. I kind of want improved braking over my centerpulls, but am wondering if its a sin to drill out the holes to make room for dual pivots?
I am planning to make this bike my everyday commuter/ light touring bike...
Any feedback would be appreciated,

your sort of in the wrong section of the forum, this is the appraisal section, but lots of the guys here do just that. if your bike has centerpulls you may need to go with the Tektro to get the correct reach and nutted mounting system.
Thanks for pointing that out, and for your comment, I just reposted the question in C&V where I thought I was posting in the first place.
