Here is the situation. I recently got my hands on a Trek 2010 Pilot 2.1 frame that I plan to build up as a commuter bike/bad weather road bike etc... We got to looking at it and discovered that when you install a regular brake caliper on it such as a shimano 105, that the pads cannot be adjusted down far enough to meet the rim.
The rim is centered in the dropouts, and the pads are down as far as they go. We got to digging and found this frame was sold with a generic long reach brake caliper. I found the tektro 559 long reach calipers that look like they should work, but my question is is there any way to get a regular caliper to work. I would much prefer being able to run something like a 105 or ultegra brake on the bike as I am far more confident in the stopping power of those brakes than the tektro.
So what solutions are there to my problem?
