The feel and power of the Racer brake is awesome! The mounting bosses on this brake are spread to 77mm and will take a wide tire or tire fender combo.
We are now making a center mount version in addition to th braze-on. Yes, we said in various publications we wouldn't do it, but now we've caved. This version comes in a front and rear. They are designed for recessed mounting holes in the seat stay bridge and fork. If you do not have these, longer mounting nuts are available.
Both versions come with all the necessary hardware: mounting bolts, straddle wires, and cable carriers. Available in black, silver and high polish.
Another neat thing about the Racer is that with these brakes you can use 700c wheels on that older but still nice frame that was originally designed for 27inch wheels. There are a lot of them out there, lugged and chromed. They also almost all have horizontal dropouts too so they can be used as single speeds or fixed gear bikes.
