I honestly don't feel that these brakes are worthy of this bike Gum. I was king of expecting something more exotic given that nature of the frame.

They are light though. Not the lightest, They were initially a good price. Im sure the repair bill will screw me. Im going to call tomorrow and see where they are. I may just cancel them. I don't want to spend a ton more on brakes though. I was looking at the KCNC c7 today. Nice price and weight. Not the best looking though. Also considering the EE. Also ugly but With great stopping power

I've been running the C7's for a year now and they have been great. Not a fan of the stock pads, swiss stop seem to work the best with them. Im 175lbs btw.

My most regretful Internet purchase. It set me back months and with what I've put into it, I could have just bought a new set. :?

Thanks for being patient people. Imagine how I feel!! It's super frustrating. :doh:
At this point, the final pics will likely be a disappointment. :wink:

I'm calling today to clear this up...then I'll have to order a new set of brakes, wait for delivery and install them. Pics by the end of next week...I think :mrgreen:

Ordered a set of EE's. Now I'll be able to complete the build...and use my powercordz. They weren't even going to work with the Ciamillo's anyway. The version was too new.

Gum this is a record and not very cool. If this hits 18 pages and not picture, I am going to unsubscribed to this thread.
