I must say that Ewa and Ted are taking customer service to high levels. They are responsive and courteous.
Solid first post, is that you Ted ;)

Nice. " Grog" is not Ted. Maybe you should contact this person directly before you make accusations. :thumbup:

No accusations. Just good old fashioned humor.

I had a good experience with ewa's after sale. My lekki8 had a very small problem i just couldnt set the front brakes perfectly. So she sent me another new front brake and gave me a refund of my freight from my place back to poland.

The brakes are good as well but i think shimano ultegra and dura ace is just on another level in terms of modulation and emergency braking.

I don't mind the price increase. But please bring out a DM version. I can't use these as I have DM brakes.

was the initial low price just to re establish the brand . with the market moving disc lightweight rim brakes have a limited lifespan

Next step:
Cable actualted disc calipers (that is better or lighter than TRP Spyre) and (carbon?) disc rotors. Probably?

Imagine how that would suck when you already invested in a hydro setup, but suddenly cable-operated calipers become a lighter option. I notice a "road disc calipers will involve more and become lighter" notion from time to time, but I very much doubt that would happen, there's already a market for lightweight MTB calipers, unless the design changes significantly or new materials to replace Al alloys (at similar price point) become available, road disc calipers won't get much lighter.

Wait for integrated calipers, why bother having hoses when you can integrate them into the frame as well :lol:
