Purchase them from a dealer, problem solved.
As far as the spring update, if you have silver springs, they will be a design prior to wide rim spec and will not clear 25's anyway, nor will they fit a Micro Cam upgrade kit and yes, that level of upgrade is difficult without proper tooling so it may be better to upgrade your brake entirely, assuming you do require the micro adjustability, clearance for a wide rim or the capacity to run 25mm tires at full PSI.
It's certainly nice to have options like EE, but they retail $200-$250 more then Ciamillo products. Hardly a few dollars more and while subjective, they are not aesthetically pleasing to my eye. In my experience, with that many pivots = more potential for slop and something to break but truth be told, I have no experience with them and am only basing that comment on my experience with other multi pivot over-engineered designs. I'm sure they stop wonderfully but again, I'm 95 Kilo and stop just fine using the Ciamillo product with carbon clinchers, personally.
From the 2 second research I did on Google, EE seems to have between 7-10 employees where Ciamillo has one. It certainly is easier to facilitate warranty and upgrades when you have a staff consisting of 10 which is why Ted depends on his dealer network. While that may not help when requiring something as complex as a spring upgrade, I can't say enough that point of purchase and warranty are better managed through distributors.
I agree with you Sugar, Ted needs to work on these issues but comparing EE to Ciamillo is not apples to apples and if it's worth it to some to spend %40 more for a comparable product, well, we have our prerogatives.
