I'm planning on buying a Merida Reacto Evo frameset to build up. All of my bikes run Campy 11. The Reacto uses direct mount brakes and Campy doesn't make them (at least not nice ones). So, do I break with tradition and use full Dura Ace 9000 or go "interracial" and mix Campy with Shimano brakes? Since all are 11 speed the free wheels should be interchangeable.

Thoughts? :noidea:

Are there some boutique options?

Guess there's the Tektro T730F/T740R neither-here-nor-there option. Or just use lower tier Shimano while waiting.
