I'm still scratching my head, how is it even possible to release a product which simply does not work. I mean, they should have discovered this centering issue by simply mounting the brakes on one to two bikes and riding, say, 100km total?

You would think, right?

Sometimes, things don't need to be changed.. Sometimes it only needs to be "tweeked" slightly from what is already a solid brakeset (previous fibula's). I for one don't look for radical changes, just want them to "work".. So why THM didn't use the older model and have it accomodate wider rims is beyond me... Now they are stuck with a bunch of molds that can only spit out defective brakesets.. :noidea:

It is a shame that it is not a direct mount.

Does anyone know if THM could fix the issues with the brake?
