Rivendell Silver Sidepull Brake Set
Designed by Rivendell and made by Tekro (R556) the Silver is perfect for wider tires and bikes with fenders.
The Bike Hermit and Sky King have this brake on Chief (700c x 32) and Sky (650B X 42).
When you open the quick release - it is nice and wide so you can get your wider tire on and off without having to deflate.
The longer reach clears the fender without any problem.
30 day return policy - original packaging and no signs of use.

If you have a frame that needs this extreme reach brake this is it. I reserved a 5 star rating because I don't think they have the stopping power of a quality center pull but I have to say that I have never run a center pull brake with this reach ever so maybe all brakes with arms this long are short on total power. Casual stops are great and setting up the brake and overall looks are 5 stars.
