Anyone recomend me some nut fit Brakes that will work with Shimano Tiagra (4600) sti's?

I cant seem to find any and i dont really want to drill the frame for recessed bolts

    Alhonga or Tektro models from the likes of Spa Cycles will be OK. If you want better quality, then time to get the drill out.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    Tektro do a variety of nutted brakes in a veriety of drops. The longest being 55-73mm drop like the R556/9. These are are fine brakes. Lower down the range is the 359 and 369 both of different drops. One is 55-73mm and the other is 47-57mm. These use an all in one pad whereas the R556 uses a sperate pad and holder.

    Alhonga brakes are very cheap and work well enough I suppose. I stock these this is how I know all of this. -wheel building and other stuff.
