Hello to all knowledgeable cycling enthusiasts I have a question!
I have perused bikeforums over the years for answers to inquiries I have had in the past and have usually come out with a solution thanks to all the knowledgeable people on here, I thank you all for that. I finally have a question I could not solve via viewing posts so I set up an account to get that answer.
I recently purchased a Univega Gran Tourismo which is outfitted with these Dia-Compe center pull brakes which is a style of brake I am unfamiliar with and not totally thrilled about. My question is, are center pulls worth keeping or should I switch them out with something I'm familiar with such as side pull calipers? What are the advantage of having center pull brakes versus side pull calipers? Also if I were to switch the brakes out would I have to change out the brake levers as well?
I thank you all for your knowledge on the subject.
