Just wondering what my options might be regarding brakes. I have a couple of 70's and early 80's bikes that I have built with period correct groupsets. That's all well and good but being a 'big lad' I am finding the brakes somewhat negliable to say the least. I was wondering if there was any particular brakesets of that period (or maybe a little later) that might actually STOP me
Currently running single pivot Galli's on a Gazelle (i'd say a 5 out of 10 in the squeeky bum ratings) and Gran Sport (a 7 at best!)......
Any guidance here chaps as I am sure I ain't the only non-whippet framed rider here
