Thanks Rick. Looks like you dremeled about 2 mm? (The initial location was not quite at the bottom of the slot)

Those Bdop things are $60 a bike!

That's such poor value.

Does anyone have any real world experience with the TRP RG957?

$60 for two sets is poor value? Being a small business I almost fail to see how the guy is even making a profit on these considering the workmanship and low volume. Plus I think there are some brake pads without holders out there going for more...

Not to mention that $60 is small beans compared to the cost of a set of DA brakes.

What about these? they are what I run on my winter bike with full length mudguards. Not fantastic but cheap. Edit: hardly DA9000 level but fine for a winter bike.

poor quality, tend to rust, their pads are killer for the rims. I'd avoid them, as they're expensive (if you buy a decent compound pad, which is a must for those brakes.)

Essentially they're the same as tektro R510, believe it or not, they even have R510 stamped on the inside of the arms.. :D

I'd go for some Campy caliper (50mm max drop instead of shimano's 49mm) sometimes just that 1mm is all you need. Or opt for Shimano Long drop calipers, or some more decent (7series) tektro..

Choice is up to you, but I'd strongly advise you to stay away from miche performance if you don't want to re-lace the rims in a few months : )

I'd vouch for the Shimano BR650, essentially Ultegra BR-6600. Had one in use for years and it's pretty much flawless and on par with the Ultegra (semi inofficially it is Ultegra). I reckon it could be tuned a fair bit too without resorting to the Dremel, just bolts and bits.

And even then the Shimano R451s are surprisingly good brakes if you change the pads. You can get a pair and some Swissstop blue/greens for less than one R650
