    Hi, I am building what I called a TT bike out of old parts, but others (at rec.bicyles.tech)have
    denominated it a POS (piece of shit). Anyways, I need some cheap road calipers. I want to spend no
    more than around $10.00. If anyone has some that you want to get rid off, I'm your dump-site. email
    me at [email protected]

    I believe I have a pair of Exage calipers (road, single-pivot, complete) in good working condition.
    If you'd be interested, let me know. I can E-mail you a pic this weekend as soon as I dig 'em out of
    my brake parts box (just got back from a trip).

    Assuming I can find 'em and they'd meet your needs, you could have 'em for $12 postpaid in the US.

    (Also have black-finish Diacompe road calipers that I had on my rain/beater bike until I upgraded to
    old Shimano 600 calips. You could have them for the same price. They are slightly better calipers
    than the Exage but do not have the tension-release assembly, though that never bothered me. With
    23mm tires I could pop a wheel in or out easily enough.)

    If you're interested in either or both, let me know. Thanks.
