My new build is being held up because my Shimano CX75 calipers aren't arriving until late June :-(.

So does anybody have any Mechanical Road brake calipers? Any condition as long as they are 160's.
Cheers :-)

need to be road specific if using drop bar levers, like Avid BB5R

these:

should work with any rotors provided you have the appropriate adaptors... also check if seller has the correct bolts with gimbled washers (like v-brake pad mounting washers) that Avid calipers usually come with?

Hope this helps! :D

Nice one Deadrats :). I'm good now though as I'm temporarily using Deore M416's until the new TRP Spyre's come out later in the year :D.
The M416's are in fact MTB calipers but with some patience they can be made to work on new 105 levers (and only £19 an end on Tweeks cycles). :)
