    Not that I have anything against my avid v-brakes, but have any of you ever had any experience with these brakes? They're supposedly incredible but I have never heard or seen them before.
    Expensive too...

    looks like very little tire clearance...maybe good for a front with a 2.1, if that

    if you have another bike, get them and try them. Life is short, experiment. Money comes and goes, but time just goes.

    OMG A PARABLE !!

    I think there was a time when there was a anti-Shimano movement and every American company was trying to sell these custom CNC made derailleurs that didn't work and cost alot of money.


    I'm not sure about the brakes. but i'm sure the high price you pay for them will not be worth it. a vee brake is a vee brake.

    There is still an anti shimano movement of sorts.

    If a vee brake is vee brake, you must ride Tektros with standard pads!
