They work really well. Much better than Red calipers even though I didn't think the Red brakes were bad at all. I got these because I wanted to reward myself after my collarbone surgery with something high-end. eebrakes definitely have a unique lever feel. Very smooth and tons of modulation. Ample power.

Yay, but only if you change the saddle to white too. It could go well with the white bits on the frame.
:hello:
Cannondale Supersix 2008 (weight: 7.3kg)
B'twin Triban 540 (in bits)
Vitus "Benotto" 979 (weight: :? )

Came in at 7.2kg. Swapped the saddle to a Fizik Aliante R1 Versus Evo so probably will stick with black tape though I'll try out white in the future. Also switched to an 11-30 Ultegra cassette, 140mm front rotor, and a slamthatstem top cap. I'm sure I could drop much more weight but for now I'm happy with the all-around performance.

I would recommend CeramicSpeed, Enduro TorqTite XD-15, or Kogel Ceramic bottoms brackets
