General Information
Carerra 600 brakes came out around 1980. The calipers were the same as the original Carerras but some metal parts like the quick release levers were plastic. They used an internal hex nut on the center axle bolt that required a special internal hex wrench. The brake blocks and carriers on later brakes had rounded ends. The sets also included No 185 brake levers which are similar to Campagnolo levers and used the same style rubber hoods.

Brand Information(click to expand)
Founded in 1933 in the swiss Schaffhausen by Otto Weinmann, very close the border to Germany, over the years Weinmann became a very well reputated and one of the world leading lightweight bicyle parts builder, focused on brakes and later rims (in the 1960s the Weinmann colle rims became very famous). In the 1960s Weinmann delivered DiaCompe with brake parts and in the 1970's and 1980's this cooperation lasted in the production of Weinmann's top modell Carrera. At the date of the 40th company anniversary they had more than 700 employees and two affiliated companies in Singen, Germany (Weinmann & Co. KG) and Schoten, Belgium. After the swiss location has been closed in 1991 business activities were administrated from the German subsidiary in Singen.
