How could I find one of those? I need a pair of these kind of brakes for my bike
SunTour BB-SB10-I, Superbe Probmarsha06/24/2017 06:55 PM
to THorn: I tried researching this topic without finding anything concrete from Suntour. Pardon the length of this response, I don't know that it will answer your question 100%, but may shed light on a couple of things that may be helpful to you nonetheless. 

Firstly, this website ( is a great resource for old catalog scans and is where I am referencing from unless stated otherwise. 

 Found 1990 catalog for Suntour Superbe Pro... ( Some highlights are.... Crankset is 130BCD and the Bottom bracket model BB-SB10-"X" doesn't specify a taper. 

In a different undated catalog scan... ( ...that shows the same model numbers for Crankset/BB's (must be within a couple years of 1990 scan from previous source).... the tapers are specified as 'SUPERBE' 

The Suntour switch from 144BCD to 130BCD (road cranks only) had to happen sometime between 1985-1988. If you look at the Superbe Pro sections of each catalog year from main source you will notice the cranks' model numbers change. There is no mention of a Superbe Pro BB before 1988 in these scans. 

 Also, in the 1991 scan the BB-SB11-"X" is the new BB model number with 'SUPERBE' taper. (On that same page to the right side in the '91 scan, you see the SPro track group still in production. These crank arms retained the 144bcd and were available as NJS variants, meaning they had to have an ISO taper.)  

Opinion: I have always thought the Superbe/Superbe Pro cranks used an ISO taper. (I personally use a BB-SB10-J with NJS Superbe Pro cranks with no fitment or chainline issues) 

 Thanks for reading, hope this could be of some help.

I had Del Mondos on a bike I used for a demo at the 1980 Bike Show in LV, and then rode to LA to watch the Human Powered Vehicle Races the following week. My all-time favorite tires! If anyone wants to suggest the closest thing available today -- tubular or clincher -- I'm interested. And will put them on the same frame I was riding then.

I think these brakes are an upscale version of the Shimano BB-100 center pull Tourney brakes. I have a set of DA center pulls mounted on one of my bikes (pictures added) and find them to be nicely finished with plenty of braking power. The ones that I have are more nicely finished (or in better shape) than some in the photos; also, they are much nicer than the Tourney center pulls in my parts box.

Complete weight: 122 g. All parts are made of steel - except the washer (aluminium).

Says Retro-Friction in General Information. This is a rachet shifter.

I just purchased Martano rim with a Wolber Liberty tire. Seems to be the only marking on the tire. WOLBER LIBERTY is all it says no size markings.

I think the production years could be a little earlier than stated for this shifter. I have this model on a 1972 Atala which is almost certainly original to the bike. The bike was complete and unmolested, very lightly ridden and original in every regard when I got it.
Campagnolo 3320, SportOldairhead06/10/2017 06:19 PM
One of these came original on my 1972 Atala Competizione. This was a second tier frame just below the Record Professional and just above the Gran Prix. I like the mix of steel and aluminum in the transitional model.

Not sure why all the derogatory remarks about these rims, but one observes that they are all speculative anecdotal comments. As one who used these rims on several different bikes with easily 8+ years riding hills, flats, potholes and direct roads, I have no complaints about them. Yes, I had true them up every 2-3 years, but they never cracked around the super tight spoke holes, never developed any flat spots, etc. Plus I weight 190 lbs! (blame it on my genes, lol) Just saying it really sucks when people post opinions about an item when they really no true experience using it.
