WTB [BNE] Shimano 600 BR-6400 (-57) long reach calipers

Postby Dan » Mon Dec 10, 2012 9:06 pm

Looking for a pair of long reach BR-6400(-57) (Shimano 600/Ultegra) calipers for my verdammte Europa build, as its built for 27" instead of 700C. Standard 39-49mm reach calipers are a touch short. Before sourcing and building 27" wheels, I though I'd scout for some of the long reach 6400s.

Thanks for looking (in your spares box) ;)

Dan, did they even make em?. I've never seen a set.

They did make 105's BITD, and you can get sora tiagra level and ultegra ones now

Hey Andy,

Was working off this - comment at the bottom. I don't know for certain that they were made.

105s would be a fallback I guess - even though I'm a bit pedantic when it comes to matching groups.

Cheers :)

They did make them, i'm just about to put a set on a Jim Bundy that i'm building up that had 27" wheels and i'm going with 700s. Sorry Dan, not for sale but. I got lucky and bought them of a fella in Germany on the ebay.

Not gloating, just confirming their existence.

Thanks for confirming what I suspected was the case. I'll continue to keep an eye out - worst case I can get some tektros, diacompes, etc., but that's not really the point.
