First of all: I had the chance to ride a BFO, but didn`t take it, cause we also had some negative feedback in germany. Personally i don`t like flaming against bikeparts, but have a look http://www.mtb-news.de/forum/showthread.php?t=557255 for more feedback.

You only own a bike when you've violated every single term of guarantee.

all positive feedback in Germany? Seen a lever that broke in the middle and when the owner wanted a new warranty they talked about lawyers and things, would never buy Brake Force One after such bad service from BFO.

The little reviews I've read, the system they use is very light but quite akward. I would rather choose either formula or shimano xtr. Formula are lighter. Stay away from sram or tune brakes.
Happy Trails !!!

I own a set, very light they have excelent modulation, those are just as powerful as Maguras Mt8, with no effort on the finger, I broke a part, and I got a new one in less than a week, no questions asked (i was not using the torque tool)

Formulas are very good but in long descents get very hot.
