I can’t seriously understand why someone that ripped off so many people, even admittedly, gets any air time here or anywhere using the excuse of “the economy wasn’t doing well and I over extended myself”!

I bought 2 sets of Zero Gravity (super crappy performance and terrible when it came to centering) and was mildly considering a set of Gravitas when tons of the complains started to surface. Very glad I didn’t order a set!!!

I have some gravitas carbon in a box somewhere. If you buy those from me they will at least arrive promptly. But you will still switch back to Shimano after a few months.

I think Ted might be better off working as a designer and letting someone else run the business side. For example naming your sports product the same as a ski pole brand is unlikely to work out long term.

You can buy the brakes from reputable shops. They are 30g lighter than ee brakes, i just don't know whether they also work the same..

It would matter even if they were on par with eebrakes. Given his history I wouldn’t get them if they were $50!!!

Campy 10 speed dual pivot, Lekki are more than powerful enough... I am over 210lb and Lekki stopped me just about the same..

I find them exceptional in terms of stopping power and the modulation is good. Super light. I've about 2,500 on mine and they're handling well. They were an early release version. There are two versions - one is the standard reach and the other extended. The standard drops the pads 43mm from the center bolt while the extended is around 50mm. 43mm seem to fit most all I've installed them on but occasionally need to go to a long reach version.
