i am looking to get some brakes for my steamroller. i was wondering if this brake set will fit. i cannot find the length of them. SRAM Apex brake caliper set is what i am looking at. if you have other recommendations please let me know.

apex is 39-49mm reach...too short for a steamroller
look for 47-57mm - tektro, shimano, & cane creek all have them
yeah, the longer reach is what you'll need.
Tektro R538 with R200 levers is what I did.
They work great.
