Ted, are these available already or if not when will they be?
Do you guys have a theoretical figure of just how much more powerful the new brakes are?
I wouldn't mind hearing some feedback from somebody who has ridden both but I guess that's still to early. PEZ are you riding these?

Pez was kind to send me an extra picture. I can't wait to know the differences in term of braking power with some Record calipers, or '07 ZG!

Adrien, do you think you will have a set to test at some point as well?

They'll have a press release out today, and test sets (other than the set or two out now to Jittery Joes and jittery Pez) should follow a short while after.

Other than that, the function, weight differences etc kinda need to wait for the review.



My take on negative G is that I put these on a bike that would cause lots of bank accounts to show that amount.... :lol:

Greetings-
I want to take a quick moment to introduce myself, I'm Ted's #2 aka The Wolf.
Second, tune into PEZ for more info on the Negative G in the coming days.
Third, I want to follow up with the testers to get updated mailing addresses and T-shirt sizes from each of you...it's not the cranks.
Thanks.

I really wouldnt mind a bit of weight for addtl braking power. The redesigned calipers should do well! Now only if there would be a way to stop my 2005 0G's to stop creaking, even when oiled...Maybe an exchange for the new model would be in order! :P
:oops: THE PAST: 2005 Cannondale R700, 2006 Specialized S-Works Tarmac Gerolsteiner, 2009 Pinarello Dogma FPX My Way, 2011 Time RXR VIP

With the current scrapmetall prices I'm sure Ted wouldn't mind if you would buy a the new set and gave him (or me) your old ones..... 8)

The new model does not replace the existing brake, it is an addition to the line.

The added grams are for the set.

Lots of this is in the redesign though...
