what kind of caliper brakes do i need?
i need new brakes for an old bike, and don't know which ones to use.
i got an old cannondale touring frame from a friend of mine. he's gone now (touring in another state) so I can't ask him.
I don't know the model, and can't find any serial numbers.
the bike is
with 27 inch wheels,
five speeds in the back,
and a steel fork.
it had diacompe caliper brakes which sort of... fell apart one day.
my first question is: does anyone know what model bike this is?
my second question is: what brakes do I need for this bike? my friend said something about shimano 105s not working unless i drilled out maybe 2 mm of the frame, but that they would line up properly.
