One look in a bike magazine and one would conclude that rim brake road bikes are gone the way of 26″ mountain bikes. But there is a big group of road cyclists who still favor a great rim brake over discs. Whether it’s the simplicity, aesthetic, or bike options that are available at the very highest level (think Pinarello Dogma, BMC Teammachine, Time Skylon, and Colnago C60, not to mention upgrading an existing frame), rim brakes are far from dead. Shimano’s Dura-Ace level components have set the highest bar for functionality, utilizing exotic materials (such as titanium) and intricate forging processes (to hollow out their crank-arms). Dura-Ace isn’t always the lightest, but it is the best functioning. The brand new Shimano Dura-Ace R9100 Brake Caliper Set continues in the Dura-Ace tradition, blending lightweight, modulation, and power. The 9100 series brakes accommodate 28c tires, and come in several mounting options – these are the traditionally-mounted version.
