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:

What about lekki8 vs THM brakes?
Lekki are lighter, but how about its performance?
Anyone with both of them?

Maybe not lighter but in my limited testing, definitely easier to mount (as its much lower profile than the TRP) and a very good feel to it.

The Juin Tech R1 calipers are definitely a good option for people who don't wish to deal with hydraulics but want disc brakes on their bikes.

The Lekki 8s are amazing brakes and so are the THMs. Both use different methods to achieve the same result and both work well having had THMs and now having Lekkis. I find the modulation better on the Lekkis and have had no issues with them. I have ridden them thru South Central Pennsylvania and it's hills and mountains for the better part of a year and in some bad weather with nothing bad to say about them. Irish Cycles distros them in US.

Full disclosure I do work with Irish but we are not associated with Ciamillo other than distribute their brakes.

Have you compared them to EE brakes?

Yes... They are different.. They are not necessarily better or worse. The EEs are heavier and have a different form factor that doesn't fit all frames but with that said they are really good brakes. The EEs have excellent modulation and a solid grip. Asthetically, they flow nicely. The linkage, which I thought would go bad in time, has kept tight relatively. The Lekkis are different in how they function and their weight. They are a bit more minimalist. The question comes down to what are you buying them for? Are you buying for stopping power and weight; then go with the Lekkis. Are you buying for another way to do a brake and good stopping power or some additional color; go with the EEs. Neither answer is wrong. Again, full disclosure, I do sell both. I like both.

From what I can see people seem to be happy with the new brakes and service? It does appear like your reviving the shit history?

Just picked up a pair of original zero gravity brakes second hand for ~135 USD. They're 31g heavier but are so much cheaper and still work great.

Very happy with Lekki 8, no problem with fitting them. They work really well, and look nice. Great service from Ted

I am aware of his history and understand the resentment from people who lost money in the past. I think its useful for people to know that Ted has a checkered background, however, people should make their own decisions. He has made a good call selling through distributors, which gives the buyer confidence that they will receive the product. In the past, I think he tried and failed to save his business, unfortunately people lost out.
