It really was a terrible review, he fits $600 brakes with 2 year old cables - and then complains the return spring is not strong enough?!?! Really...? :shock:

This reviewer seems like a moron. How about your bars banging against the top tube from a similar "incident" - do we fault the bars?
To be fair, if a bar had a sharp point right where it contacts the top tube we probably would

...except how much that would vary by frame, bar, and the size of each.

And in some cases the casings will have to be changed in order to work well.
At least to my old sram aerolinks the casings were too short.

does anyone have a spacer (the ones used to adjust for rim width when mounting pad holders) for the current model that they can measure for me?

inside and outside diameter
thickness

i've got all four installed at the moment so hoping to avoid taking off a pad holder to measure

Hey there Sungod.

If you come up with an alternative source for those spacers please let us know - I could use some more (for some reason my latest set of EEs only came with 4 spacers (one per pad) rather than 8 (two per pad) which I need for my narrower rims.

Cheers :beerchug:
