Building a winter bike with mudguards and my brakes are unsuitable
so I'm looking for long reach brake callipers a pair of them
they have to be about 40mm - 60mm drop or there abouts.

Nothing special but must be usable with quick release, rear allen key or bolt fitting.

SHIMANO 600 EX ARABESQUE would be good or something similar.

Thanks in advance.

I have a Weinmann 730 set, with levers £25, no QR though, but the barrel adjusters could be used
perhaps?
