    I've just bought a new (secondhand) Road bike and I am loving it. However with my new found speed and the side pull brakes I'm finding that stopping leaves a little to be desired. Is it worth getting dual pivot brakes? Should I just get new brake blocks (the current ones are hardly worn, but they may be a bit old)?

    Also my levers seem quite stiff but I guess that that is set by the springs in the brakes. I'd quite like a lighter feel to them so any suggestions here would be nice too.
