Very nice, I think they look really good for a DIY job! Have you tried them on your bike yet?

cool brakes, jeremy!
i suppose your brake pad holders are kool stop dura ace?i heard that they come with a superlight dura ace model with drilled pad holders and ti screws. don't know about exact weight savings, just know that prices are high like hell for them(a friend once asked for them).
how did you fabricate the 2 littel cable stops(that you hang into the cantis on each side)?i've heard that mads kock lost his parts for his 4za brakes and now has to run avids...

well my pads are koolstops, that i drilled out, then instead of having the stud coming out of the brake pad, i made a special nut that went inside the carrier and an aluminum bolt comes from the brake arm. Didnt cost that much ($20 for the koolstops), $5 for the aluminum hardware.

I didnt fabricate the cable stops (although XTC-MAX did in his carbon brake report) I just stole them from my Froggleggs. Although they can be bought here: http://www.store.yahoo.com/cyclocrosswo ... bakit.html


thanks for the kind words all.
