Not wanting to spend any more than £100, which is what both of these Retail at.

TRP's come with carbon + alloy pads, which is a bonus. And also come in Red 8)

Grateful if anyone has experiences good/bad and can share their thoughts...

ultegra brakes have a more useful adjustment range. the pad height can actually be adjusted, instead of just angling the pads as required by the euroX. i like the look of them, too, and even though they are lower profile, they keep most of the useful mud clearance of euroX-type brakes by offsetting the arms from the pivots and taking up the extra space with long spacers. those clever shimano guys...

I switched from the TRP's to the CX70. THe CX70 are much more powerful. I would recommend them. They are good enough for World Cup leader Kevin Pauwels.

Craig Alexander turned up at the world ironman champs this year on an unbranded cervelo, yet his contract with orbea hadn't expired. Also, Cippolini used to ride pretty much whatever he wanted to. There are many many more examples :smartass: !!

Sorry, Back on topic.... cheers for the input guys. From the feedback received I'll pull the trigger on the ultegras... :thumbup:

I've seen 3 published weights: 159, 160 & 165 grams (per wheel).

Thanks. I'm curious to give them a try, but if they don't offer more stopping power (than my current BR-R550s), I'd rather just have something lighter.

The only real place the euro X would shine would be in a really muddy race. Other then that the Shimano brakes a much nicer. You can adjust pad height which is nice.

Speaking of the Euro Xs... Did TRP ever come up with a pad that would alloy toe-in adjustment to stop squealing? I ditched the original pads and bought some adjustable ones from Velo Orange, but just wondered...

TRP does make an adjustable brake pad holder, and now it is now stock on their brakes. They also offer it as an aftermarket option.

I swapped one of my bikes over the the 950SL and love them. Sure they are lower profile, but they have tons of power and have never been an issue for me (clearance wise).

They also have a wide range of adjustments.

Thanks for the heads up. I found them. Given the price, might stick with the Velos, though...
