Following on the heels of the successful Racer is the leaner,
meaner, racier Racer Medium. It's got
fantastic stopping power and thanks to the very stiff and short arms it
modulates that power better than any brake we've ever used. The Racer
Medium is offered in both a center mount and a braze on configuration.
The Center Mount version
features an additional bridge piece that runs between the pivots and
allows the Racer Medium to mount to frames with a single brake mounting
hole above the tire. The option is given for a shorter recessed
bolt to work with modern frames, or a longer non-recessed
bolt that works with older frames. In this setup the Racer Medium is a medium
(or "standard") reach brake with a range of 47 to 57mm.
The Racer Medium come with all necessary hardware: mounting
bolts, straddle wires, and cable carriers. Black or silver anodization
is available, along with a high polish finish.
Between the arms there is enough clearance to
fit a 45mm fender and a 32mm tire. We think this is a
perfect combination for an all-around-do-everything road bike if there
ever was one. As a bonus, the brake will not pinch the side of the
fender like dual pivot brakes do.
