Just finishing a nice track build (early 60's carlton flyer) and I'm looking for an interesting front brake (though may be happy with a pair).

Tried a nice set of Mafac racers- but the drop was too long :?- think I will need 49 and below.

What you got? 8)

(and no I cant afford those tasty deltas on show at the mo... :( )

Haven't got any but how about 600AX aero http://velobase.com/ViewSingleComponent ... &AbsPos=11 which tend to come up for a reasonable price

or maybe some Weinmann Delta's http://velobase.com/ViewSingleComponent ... &AbsPos=10

Very tasty...

What are they like to adjust the drops? Can you?!

You thinking of parting company?
:wink:
