Campagnolo BR-02CH Chorus Monoplanner Brakes



Used: Pair - Front and Rear, Mounting Bolt is Bent on Front, Cone Cap Nuts are rusty, adjusters are missing, need some tlc.


In the early-mid 1980’s, Campagnolo was exploring radical brake ideas.  The single pivot brake was simply getting stale, and not powerful enough.  Their first rendition were the Delta brakes, which were gorgeous but too complicated and heavy to be a reliable design.  The monoplaner’s were their second attempt, and they hit the nail on the head.  These brakes perform nearly as good as modern dual-pivot brakes, are lightweight, and have a beautiful and exotic look.  They are rather rare, especially in NOS condition!
