Do you think there will be a carbon fiber made direct mount brake? It would certainly lighten up the bike significantly.

I have sent them an email and they replied saying that they are working on a DM version. Let's hope it will come to fruition.

I've seen chinese carbon cranks but no carbon brake calipers. I hope they will make some soon.

At equal weight they should perform much better and if much lighter they should be at least similarly good.

If ciamillo can do a direct mount brake I am in! If anyone can push the envelope it is ciamillo but of course we will have to be patient until the product is released.

You do yours. They seem to be proving that they've overcome their previous issues. My Lekki8s arrived within days of ordering.

Maybe he got his act in gear, but on the backs of everyone that did not get their products. Why would you want to support someone like that?

If indeed he has turned his ship around, he do what is right and take care of his past. If he did that, I think he would get a bit more support for his products. We all make mistakes but we do not all screw people over to support those mistakes.

They have been telling people to get in touch with them, so they can be compensated

I cannot for the life of me understand why there is a single person buying their stuff, but much less defending them. Maybe it is just me....... :noidea:

I was one of the original crank testers. Ted did not come up with a viable crankset for production but he sent me a set of free set zero g ti brakes and a t shirt that said I was a zero gravity crank tester but all I got was this lousy t shirt.
