Hi there guys,

The title pretty much explains it all, I'm looking to get some light brakes (that actually brake) so I'm torned between these two...

eeBrakes have great feedback on one hand, on the other I quite like to Ciamillo micro look, and they are 2/3 of the price.

Any feedback/ thoughts betweend these two would be apreciated!

Many thanks!!

In all seriousness, if you can go into a shop and actually buy (pick up, pay and walk out with them) the choice is simply down to you.
If there is any mention of ordering, or deposits. Get the eeBrake.

yep, after a closer inspection at actual weight of the ciamillos/ delivery issues of the micro, guess I'd better spend a few more €€€ and go the the eebrakes...

thanks everyone!

Their madone version for the front seems like vapour ware though... I've been waiting forever for fwb to tell me they're here..

Regardless of delivery issues, it's still an easy choice. The EE is a far better performer than the Ciamillo.

@kayrehn, the madone brakes are back in stock. Sorry if you didn't get an email about them, we've had some mail issues lately.

Can you get the 2015 Ciamillo micros? I heard they never delivered the 2014 versions yet.

A french site claims to have a few to sell, they're supposed to be the official seller for Europe.

Even then you'd have to worry about potential warranty support, and Ciamillo don't have the reputation of being the most reliable at QC either.

Good point, being very much in the reliability over all else camp, I can't actually recall claiming on warranty more than about 3 times.

When I was having hand problems on long technical descents and wanted the lighter brake springs for my EEs, Craig was very responsive. And he emailed me six months later to see how they were working!

Great customer support.
