- Long Drop Road Bike Calipers… What's good?
Shimano are best
3xx is a Sora level component
4xx is a Tiagra level component
5xx is a 105 level component
6xx is an Ultegra level component
7xx is a Dura Ace level component
Give or take a bit, they don’t always update them with the groupset model years, so I’d imagine the ultegra won’t match the new 11s groupset for a little while.Posted 4 years agomboySubscriber
OK cheers guys
The consensus so far seems very much in favour of the R650’s. Not too expensive so will consider them. Might end up fitting Campag to this bike though, so anything out there without the big S brand name on it potentially that works pretty well too? How about the Tektro R539’s? My current road bike had Tektro R540’s on it, and whilst I’d say they’re not quite as powerful as Ultegra 6700’s, they’re not far off.
What pads would you suggest? Combination of durability (this will be a “winter” bike) and performance would be good.Posted 4 years ago
