Hi !

I live in South Korea and received it yesterday. Maybe I am the first in my country. :)

The specification is 65g x 2 = 130g, but the actual size is 145g. :noidea:

I just want the performance to be good. It can not be rained today.

Matte 3k carbon and the color was changed from red to black. I'll attach a photo

Ive been looking at these for a while, but have seen two different specs, ie. Red and in UD finish. Yours are exactly the ones i was after with the 3k and black anodized. Not to sure now with the weight as heavier than my old Fibs. Do like the idea of the wheel adjustment.
Where did you get them from. Cheers.

Enjoy! I have the old fibulas and they are every bit as powerful as dura aces

More than + 10% difference with manufacturers spec? Are you planning to ask or dispute on this?

+15gr on such a posh product are too much IMO.

It's raining quite heavily in Seoul today... maybe time to test wet performance / modulation?

I find that incredibly hard to believe.

The Fibulas brake very well. As well as Dura Ace may be an exaggeration but I'd say they are >95% of Super Record which for all intents and purposes is more than adequate.

Now, my issues with the Fibulas were: they seize in gritty rain rides and the rear return spring is a tad weak. I couldn't get enough of the friction out of my rear brake cable run on the Evo to reliably have the Fibulas open. I didn't have this issue on the Litespeed so it may be isolated. As far as durability in the rain, for a dedicated light bike or a bike that won't see the rain, that's fine. Since the carbon parts move on each other, a minute amount of fine grit will cause the brakes to stop returning to fully open. I'm curious if the new ones are better in this regard (as well as stronger return springs).

As far as the weight goes, that's about the same as my old versions, which were 143g. You're getting supposedly stronger brakes with a cam to adjust to wide wheels.

Indeed, where did you get them? All (but obviously not really all?) the places in Europe show them as "delivery time unknown".

agreed. that said, i pulled the THM Fibs off and put the EEBrakes on and happy that i did just for the reason that i ride in all types of weather. and when the grit got into the Fibs...the springs weren't quite strong enough to return back to where they should be...and would rub when i got out of the saddle. had to clean them quite a bit...lube the pivots to make them smoother and return.

Very nice set of brakes! I guess they must be starting to ship as its been long enough. Id be really interested to see how the wheel works to widen/close the caliper.
