new bike came with Tektro R539 brakes....after years of riding 105/Ultegra brakes, I find the R539 squishy and the feel spongy. While the pads are soft, the spring just doesn't have that snap or firmness for good control/modulation.
Anyway, like an idiot, I bought Shimano 105 brakes from an on-line retailer, went to put 'em on and the pads are all the way to the bottom of the arm and still grabbing tire.
Shimano make a 105/Ultegra long-reach option? I couldn't find any but did find R450/R650 - Anyone here use them? Anyone with experience of the Cane Creek SCR-3L?
