Slush-encased EE brakes? I wonder if they accumulate more slush weight than DA brakes would.

EE brakes just more pivot points to retain dirt, grime, water...lovely

The Lone Wolf (aka Dan) bling'd out his Lotus recently. There are 45,000 rhinestones per wheel, and an unknown quantity covering the frame, handlebars, and fork. The only parts left in tact are the vintage Campagnolo "Delta" brakes and the saddle.


If I'm not mistaken those are Profile Bullet brake levers, combined with those Delta calipers this guy isn't gonna stop anytime soon :lol:

I wouldn't have ridden at all had I known about the storm: wasn't on the radar or in the forecast and didn't encounter it until well away from the car/start. Had I gone the opposite direction, the weather was cold but dry. Spent the day cleaning the bike. All's well, except the lingering winter conditions here. BTW: EE brakes are a bit of a bother to keep clean but I'm very happy with them.

Bodø, Norway.

On the classic skis.. couldn't get the wax right, so ended up skating on them, fairly hard, but worth it in this magnificent weather :-)

Too bad you moved this thread here. Prediction; more clicks to get to it will yield fewer hits and fewer picture posts. But I guess that is what you want?
