The bike I use for touring came with no-name long reach dual pivot calipers. Replacing the brake pads helped immensely with improving the stopping power.
I'm toying with the idea of upgrading my brakes. Any suggestions out there for a quality dual pivot caliper that would be worth the improvement. My LBS suggested Ultegra or 105. Is Ultegra worth the premium? Are there other good dual pivot calipers out there?
I found a used 105 brake set on Craigslist for $45. I'd have to make a 120 mile round trip drive to pick them up though.
