Campagnolo Dual Pivot Skeleton Brakes w/ Nutted Conversion Bolt (Silver)

***SOLD***

Hello!

Up for sale is a pair of Campy dual pivot skeleton brakes that I converted for nutted frames using a JTEK engineering conversion bolt. These are a massive upgrade from vintage side-pull brakes (I was using these on my Masi). The brakes have less than 500 miles on them. I installed Kool-Stop Super Record style pads which ended up being a few mm too long but still function 100%. I'm including the stock, unused pads.

$75/shipped

Well, that's a nice deal - and I'd take you up on it if I hadn't picked up a pair this month! Bought them to upgrade my braking, and while I haven't yet mounted them, I'm expecting a noticeable increase in braking power with less pressure on the levers (I'm getting old, and my grip ain't what it used to be).

I'll ask for the others perhaps wanting to know the same thing: in addition to the original pads, are you including the original recessed bolts?

I think that's the bit which is front and center in your first photo, but didn't want to assume.

GLWS.

I think the Polished Aluminum really shows the craftsmanship well. The Black set, a newer model, even having similar craftsmanship... Meh...

Agreed. I'm definitely a fan of the silver version vs. the black for the same reason. Well, and the fact that, component-wise these days, most everything is presented in black. The silver version, although modern-looking, still gives off a bit of a vintage vibe.

You can use the Shimano bolt on Campy brakes. That’s what I used.

Very nice adaptation. I think the silver look way better than black also. Incidentally, first time I’ve noticed a Campy bit not made in Italy or Romania.

Campy definitely hit a home run with the skeleton brakes. They are elegant, and are amazing performers. They honestly look more the part of vintage brakes, despite their dual pivot.

I'm surprised this lasted two hours!

I've done this a couple of times myself. It's a very nice upgrade, and IMO a cleaner way to use modern brakes with nutted mounting than any of the alternatives I've seen.

I used a bolt from a nutted Tektro front brake. The compatibility of the design shared between Shimano, Tektro, and Campagnolo is truly surprising.

I love Campagnolo's "skeleton" calipers, and have used single and dual-pivot for basically as long as they've been available on the market. They're definitely my favorite short-reach modern caliper. The classic aesthetics, the single pivot option, the performance are all great. These silver debadged calipers from an 11sp Athena group fitted to my KHS Professional definitely don't look out of place!

I saw that, too - first time hearing Campy was outsourcing the manufacture of some parts to Taiwan (what is the world coming to?).

Kidding, of course! Vittoria's tires are made in Taiwan, too - and they're hands-down the best rubber I've ever met the road with.

Not meaning to derail too much but I have a set of new Campy wheels made in Taiwan. If you go to Campy’s website it proclaims how they are proud that all of their products are made in EU.

Oh Campagnolo, you slay me. 🙄

If they are going to outsource, they have chosen well (Taiwan makes really solid stuff) since the quality of the new stuff does not seem to have fallen back much (Shimano as well, honestly). I would imagine that both companies just simply cannot use old resources to keep up with the astounding world wide demand, even at the pretty significant price point.

Though honestly, the newest Campy is the skeleton Centaur/Athena stuff and that is circa 2007 and I think some were still made in Italy but who knows.

Taiwan is home to many, many good things and has been for decades. Campy should (IMO) shout about their components being made in a first rate facility in TW instead of "Campagnolo is the only components company in the cycling world with its own production units, all located in Europe." It's just one of those things that doesn't sit well with me.

Rant over.

I've heard those skeleton brakes are excellent. Look sharp too!
