The pads seem to have wings like the road shoes. I don't think any of the BBB canti pads have them.

These look nice.

Indeed BBB brakepadholders with koolstop brakepads for aluminium rims. I've used for carbon rims BBB corkpads, and will try now Swisstop yellow.

Yes, I checked the BBB catalog and apparently they have changed the design a little bit.

Nice! How do you like the Pro PLT compacts? I've tried various bars and settled on them, love the bend/drop and great value for money!

I love them, because I have small hands the reach is super for cyclocross. All the pro products are a great value for money. Cheap and pretty light!

Verry nice, I've never seen this frame - fork combination before butit looks great.
How does it ride? Does it react as bad as the normal empella fork does when you brake hard with the front brake?

And i think you have to clean your seat until it's white again. Try shave foam, or Dreft soap with a nail brush.

It ride fantastic, much better than my old frame - Van Tuyl 350 -. I had last year a carbon fork of Quasar, the homebrand of Van Tuyl and that fork was so bad, always shuttering when you brake hard with the front, but this fork is really great. Braking in the front wihtout any problems.

Thanks to the suggestions to clean the seat! I'll try it.
