Wrong. While I'm not sure what the Cobalto calipers had for pad holders, Super Record pad holders were steel, just like Record; part number 2014/D on the right side, 2014/S on the left side.

At some point they began dipping the wheel guides in black plastic. I don't recall when. -- Peter Jon White --------------------------------- Peter- I am not sure I follow you. I indeed have a set of Super record brake calipers with AL-alloy brakepad holders, (dipped in black plastic) and Cobalto Al-alloy brakepad holders, (dipped in white). However, I can't verify or disclaim
anything about part numbers.
