So it's 1971 and you have a really nice racing bike you want to spec for fast time trial stuff. You don't want Campagnolo Record brakes because everyone has them and you think one of the two would be better and lighter:

Universal 68s

or

Weinmann 500s

Which would you pick? Neither might be an answer if a good period correct alternate were suggested.

I'd pick the Campagnolo Record ones (if I could somehow scrape together enough cash to buy them), because almost no one that I ride with has them, and they're better.
