Been waiting that long myself- and I think it is worth it.

I ordered from Wise Cycle Buys - recieved great service from William! I ordered on 17/5 and they shipped on 19/5... may be worth considering especially since Wise Cycle Buys offers free ground shipping in the US.

Still haven't recieved them though, but thats because I had them shipped to NJ and then hand carried to Denmark to avoid customs. :D

Oh, and according to their webpage they are actually on stock at Wise!

I bought both of mine from wise and they did have them in stock although that was a while ago. The good news is that I have been using one set thousands of miles and I still feel they are worth both the wait and the money. I did get both of mine before the price went up!

Seems like these brakes sell like crazy yet I've seen maybe 5 pairs other than in photos on here. Is there anyone selling these brakes for anything close to the original $323 that they were on sale for 12 months ago?... There's no way in hell that I'll be blowing $400 bucks on a pair.

Sneaking around, ea. in Germany, you could grab them for 370 - 380 euros...

The concern of a "better look" is something personal (love the AX, too...)

About braking power, lot of threads here tend to the opposite (ZG way better than AX)

And for the AX, it's an extra 100 euros banknote outta your wallet !

There is a retailer trying to make a "decent" profit there Luc...

I paid appx. €321,- for them in the US, and the only Danish reseller that I know of only charges appx. €335,-. The only reason I bought in the US is that they were backordered locally.

Bought my ZG last december, in Germany. 340 euros, just 4 or 5 days before having them delivered...

This incredible (!) raise of price is recent, thru the official retailer in France...(why ?), they used to sell them just before at ...450 or 499 (can't remember) euros. Not bad, anyway, from the beginning :!: :!:
