Superlite, that's cool! (I mean about you and Ted and the brakes, they will definitely look better than your avatar... :lol: )
Let us all know how the ZG's work out....

It is very significant what Ted is doing. It says much about his dedication to producing the best possible brakes he can, and the pride he has in his work. I believe that even if the problems are not solved with this pair he will receive the feedback and make efforts to correct any remaining problems until ZG brakes perform to the level serious riders expect. It is also significant the role WW played in bringing this about. If more manufacturers realized that the feedback they can get from this site may be far more objective than some of their so called "independent testing", they could improve their products and be more successful. Some of these companies have much to learn about the importance of customer feedback. WW rules!

superlite if you don't like them or need a second opinion on them, I'm just down the road from you. I'll gladly do extensive real life testing in a state of the art facility (Colorado!)

If you want to test them on the pyrenees TDF desdents just send them to me!
On july I will be able to test them on croix de fer, galibier and alpe d'huez, if anyone is willing to know how they perform on those descents with a 70 kg rider just send a pair to me ;-)
I sold my BRS 200 SL as they weren't powerfull enough.

I have access to that "facility" myself, I think I'll do my own testing. :wink:
