the brakes in that gruppo photo are U brakes and mount on studs that are welded to the frame and fork. they are in a similar position where centerpull brakes would be, but I'm not sure if there are the same dimensions or spec. the Campag Mtn bike Gruppo is more of a 1987-1992 vintage from what I remember. Euclid being the top end version and the Rally being the OE/pricepoint version.

Or am I incorrect? or does it matter if I'm incorrect since it is off topic?
