Have mine already on order from Posh. Latest reply (earlier this week) was that they will be receiving first shipment in late December/early Jan. They will fill all early orders from that shipment I am guessing. Not sure if you order now weither you will have to wait for next shipment. Expect the price to be around $1000 though.

$1000? Is that just a guess or did you talk to somebody? Seems way overpirced if correct, Don't think I'd pay more than 500, and thats too damned expensive.

Offical price on the Eurobike was 950 Euro (incl. VAT), but it wasn't 100% sure if this will be the final price.
Currently Axel needs 3 days to manufacture one pair, that's the reason why they're so expensive.

Thats crazy! Guess these will never find there way to my bike. Oh well, my CAT brakes are just as light, but carbon would have been cool.

I am thinking of getting the CAT brakes also. Just as soon as Fed ex pays for my missing FSA cranks that i just found on the 6th floor of my building Still SEALED :lol: it took me 2 months but they will pay for it.

I think $1000 is too much for brakes, unless you have it like that. but still thats $25 shy of my frame for and headset.

But reason says I'd be best served by getting a set of CAT or FRM brakes.

are the CAT brakes dual pivot? The FRM are pretty naff at stopping a bike so I've heard. I know one guy who uses them on carbon rims but then he only really ever races on closed circuits and tracks so no mega breaking efforts are really required..

40mph on a wet descent.. I wouldn't like to say :shock:

Doozer :mrgreen:
