Tell me about the brakes -- are they worth the premium price tag?

I use them in and around the mountains of Andalucia, worked fine coming down Sierra Nevada (2000m descent roughly) at high speeds. I think there's plenty of braking power there what with the Green swiss stops. Yellow Swiss stops in them on carbon rims are slightly lesser but nothing to freak about.

Its a nice bike and im a big fan of ISP's but its hard to argue with the ISP naysayers when you see stuff like this. Between what looks like a 80mm stem and the slammed mast topper id say the frame is more than a few sizes too big for you?

100mm Stem and whilst point taken on the mast topper, frame is definately right size for me.
