Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

I've been trying to find Empella Froglegs brakeset from Canada or USA but with no luck. Or if you don't know where to get these then do you have any experience in Tektro TRP Euro X or Tektro CR520 or CR720 brakesets?

My sponsor is slightly reluctant to set aside any more funds for my ongoing bike projects even if I promise neck, back and leg massages for a year so I need to find as cheap alternatives as possible.

I live 'very' nearby the EMPELLA shop. I even know Ad himself quite well. If you want to I can get you a set / inform about it. And ask for shipment or I'll ship it for you. just let me know, pm me.

Do they need to be Empella? If you want FrogLegs style brakes, but can't get them why not order some Spooky's? They look and function the same. Some people on the board may even prefer the Spooky's

They don't need to be Empellas but Empellas are slightly cheaper(?).
