Ahhh, Flacman, nice build. Well done.

How do you find the the shifting on the IRD cassette?

Good luck in the ride

Ah, the M5 brakes. They certainly look - well, different :D

how do they brake compared to other brakes you know (DA, Record, Mavic, AX, ZG, FRM...)???

Thanks "Sleg8" .
To tell the truth, I spent several hours looking and touching this beautiful piece of metal and I was not dissapointed. The shifting is very solid, I do not have a very powerful output.. (I'm "FLACO" only 130 lb) but the acceleration and shifting in a hill climb is perfect. I used it for almost 6 hours.. different combinations, and every time it was perfect. It's only 102 grms.

I've used DA, Record, Mavic & CaneCreek SL200 (the last one is not a brake, it's a speed reducer... :lol: ) and the M5 it's certainly different. I do not know how to transfer into words... it brakes like the Record, very powerful, and it springs back rapidly. It's very easy to adjust, the only problem is the cleaning up (if you are the kind of person that enjoys cleaning the bike, you won't have any problem)

El Flaco,

I was lookign at the pics of your build build again. Good job. However, I noticed that, on your front brake calipers, you have the brake pads around the wrong way with the towards the front instead of the rear. You might want to cahge them around to prevent the pads from working their way out when braking.

Hi again, Sleg... Thank you for your concern... and for the time looking at the pictures (Gisel -my artsy wife-) took these two new ones specially for you. (we are sleepy-dead right now) These carbon brake pads are made by Bernhard Langerbein (BTP guy) and he glued the corima pads to the carbon...there is no front or back. that's what makes them very light and they work very well (these in the picture are used already)
going to bed now...
