Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Tektro R520 details?

Hi,
Its a pleasure to ask my first question here on this forum (and I hope its in the right section )
So, I am building up a custom road bike and need to buy brake calipers. My bike's frame is cheap and ordinary road bike frame in India. I measured its fork thickness (where the calipers are to be fixed) its exactly 30mm. So my question is will the Tektro R520 (Calipers) fit on it? Is the fixing nut of those calipers long enough for my bike?
I searched the internet, but could not find its dimensions anywhere. If any of you is using them can you please tell me the nut's lenght?

Yep, the nuts come in varying lengths. Choose the one that's right for your fork and attach the brake.
