About Rim Brakes
Rim brakes for bikes use the sidewall of the rim to reduce speed, this is done by a pad on either side applying friction against the rim, which reduces your momentum. Road brake callipers have been redesigned over the years and now use a system called 'dual pivot' which means the brake arms pivot off centre to apply a higher amount of pressure on the rim to increase your stopping power. Most manufacturers use dual pivot callipers on the front and rear, but some Campagnolo brakes use a traditional single pivot on the rear to 'balance' the braking power, the logic behind this is that as you brake your weight shifts on to the front of the bike and as much as 75% of the braking force is applied to the front.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
Would these be a suitable upgrade? I am worried about the drop on them as I saw a post from someone with a Trek 1.1 and these wouldn't fit. I am not sure where I can find out if they will fit or not, and if not what would be a suitable equivalent replacement.
These should be compatible without issue.
i bought a specialized allez elite 2009 frame without anything attached so i dont know what was fitted before
Will these calipers be compatible with the Shimano 2300 brake levers I have on my bike?
