Wanted....

Shimano Tourney Brake Calipers or similar nutted caliper that has a deep drop.

I think Tourney brakes go to as far as 80mm reach. I need 57mm up front and 70ish mm round back. Not fixed on these specifically, just know they'd work, something European would be even more ideal!

I've been told Modolo speedy brakes are deep but not sure if deep enough?
Anyone got a set of these Shimano, Modolos if suitable, or ideas, or something else?

Many thanks.

not retro, but would do the job, are cheap and have had some decent reviews

Thanks for the heads up, hadn't seen these. I've got some Tektro r556 brakes but have decided to look for something more dainty!

Many thanks for the reply...

But I've actually had an offer of some Weinmann 703s (I think) already, so if I go for Weinmanns I'll honour that commitment!
