The Racer brake is a center pull caliper brake with long reach arms and plenty of clearance.
Front wheel version with recressed center-bolt and for short-pull road brake levers.
Based on the classic Mafac center pull, the Racer brake has been updated with modern materials and manufacturing. The long reaching arms are CNC machined with a T-shaped profile that makes them very stiff. The widely spaced pivots make room for larger tires and full-coverage fenders.
This Racer version is designed to mount directly to the frame via center pull brake bosses. Contrary to the Braze-On version an additional bridge spans the pivots and mounts to the frame with a bolt. 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.
The Center Mount Racer is a long reach brake, and has 57 mm to 67 mm of reach (when measured diagonally from the center mount to the top of the brake pad). This works great on frames designed for long reach brakes, and can convert frames designed for 27″ wheels to 700c, or 700c to 650b.
