Converted my bike to all dura-ace 7700 group, but I'm stuck on the brakes. The 7700 calipers that came with the group I bought do not have enough reach.
If I'm measuring this right, I need ~70-75mm of reach (from center of brake bridge hole to brake surface on the rim).
What are the best brake calipers I can get that will fit, the tektro r559's?
I also want to be able to run larger tires, these are temporary 700x23 or 25's that came with the wheelset I bought, I plan to run 700x32's.
I found these dia-comp's in a bin at the local bike recyclery so I grabbed a pair for $10 just in case I couldn't find anything else long enough, but the brake power from these is -horrible-! I commute on this bike and sometimes have to stop fast to avoid cars, these I can pull the levers to the bars and not lock the tires up...
