    Legnano Tipo Roma (restoring to original condition) and a Gran Premio that's full of Campy and Cinelli... and rolls faster than I can go!

    Lonnnng-Reach Brakes

    Hi All,

    Looking for long-reach brakes that will work on the rear of a 60's Legnano frame; probably had center-pulls originally (Universal?).

    May also need a rear off-set pivot bolt.

    Any suggestions?

    Rivendell and Tektro have developed a dual pivot brake with a 55 to 73mm reach. It is the model R556 for Tektro. The Rivendell version will have a slightly different quick release and brake pads. Rivendell also sells long reach dia compe centerpulls but your local bike shop might have some laying around.

    Mafac Competitions have a very long reach and the rear brake has a slotted mount that extends the reach even longer. I ended up using two rears on my wife's mixte after I switched from 27" to 700c wheels.
