- Road brake help
My roady came with Cannondale C4 brakes. I keep having problems with them and am looking to replace them. I was going to grab some 105s but am not sure they’ll be compatible with my levers.
I have the 2011 Sora shifter/levers (the ones with the little thumb shifter). Looking at the blurb on the Merlin site it says;
Must be used in conjunction with ST-5700, ST-6700 or ST-7900 STIs for correct leverage ratio
Will I be able to get away with using 105 calipers with the Sora levers or should I look at a lower spec caliper?Posted 4 years ago
I’m still struggling with what to get 🙂
I’m not sure if I need long or short drop…
Measuring from the mounting bolt to the mid-point on the pad is about 55mm, so presumably long drop… But my existing caliper looks to be able to cope with a range of 40-60mm, don’t all calipers do that?Posted 4 years ago
