Slight grave dig here - but does anyone know where to buy the newer updated version of this brake, the R970EQ, online?
A year has passed and these still seem very hard to track down online. A couple on ebay, but only white with red decals, 2011 i think?
Agreed, I got a set on eBay... seems to be the best place, particularly for the price.
My set are matte black R970EQ's - finished exactly like the R979's - pretty sure they were taken off a BMC Impec...

Don't know why TRP doesn't make those available, since it's not like they are going to steal sales of R979's being totally different ratios.
(maybe if you contact TRP and ask really nicely - mind you their online pricing is stupid high)
They are really nice brakes - sorta wish I hadn't given them to my wife!
There's a pair of gloss
black R970EQ's on ebay now with some hideous S-Works logos.seller gsoma340
