200 Mikee although 195 might fit, I'm used to being a little higher at the front now and don;t want to go back or change my stem. I don't need them just now, would just like a set for my collection.

Purchased and received a set of Dia Compe parallel push vee brakes front and rear. Didn't know anyone else made parallel push other than Shimano, copies obviously but nicely made complete with pads and fitting NOS for £20. They claim to be XT equivalent. So I shall fit them to current build tonight, a single speeded skip rescue Claud Butler. Thats 3 CB's I have now :roll:

There are more available for those interested.

velo,
I've got 2 sets of those, 1 silver, 1 black, that I bought in Edin Bike co-op New Year sale a good few years ago. They came out shortly after the original XTs, whenever that was, then just disappeared so I suspect that Shimano claimed copyright infringement so Dia Compe stopped making them. I had them on the Coyote that I used at the Bawbags meet in Jan '11.

They worked great, much better than the Tektro cantis that I'd previously had. They also haven't, so far, developed the squeal/rattle that XTs did, that you got the wee washer kit for.
