I have 1st gen EE brakes with the updated bridge. They perform well in all conditions and the pad holders are great for their ease of use. Would you consider the THM Fibula's to be an overall(weight, looks, performance) upgrade over the 1st gen EE brakes? Just have the itch to spend some money, but would like to get some opinions from members on this board on whether it is worth it. Should I make the leap, or should I spend my money elsewhere.
I will say that the EE brakes are hideous to the point they kinda look cool. Cleaning them is not fun either, but they do perform like nothing else I've tried.
i have the 1st gen and 2nd gen EE brakes...and recently got the THM fibula. also upgraded the 1st gen with new bridges. not really worth it. if i were to do it again...i would get the latest 3rd gen EE brakes and be done with it. i feel more confident with the EE brakes and may eventually get the newest EE. dealing directly with Craig is great. he's very responsive and takes care of my 2 EE brake sets...upgrading and replacing a few parts. besides, cost is about half. with the new black anodizing...the latest EE brakes are quite nice. cleaning THM fibulas has its issues as well. large center cavity for catching alot of debris.
