From the photo, it looks like you not only received your Omegas, but have them on the SLC. Soooooooooooooooooooooo..... what do you think??

Looking at pics of the S5, it appears that the cable hanger of the brake might hit the seat tube, and even if it doesn't, there might not be enough room for a smooth cable run.

If so, one option might be to use the additional spacers provided to mount the Omega further away from the frame...although I've only tested the effect of the gap on the front, not the back, I doubt it would measurably impact the aerodynamic drag.


I think I will run a different brake on the back and the tri-rig Omega on the front once they become available and I get my frame back. I think that you are right in the importance of the aero brake on the rear of a bike like the S-5. One of the frames big selling points is that it is designed to shield the rear brakes from the air. Might feel abit strange having two different strength brakes but I will certainly get used to it.

Mr. Coggan and Nick. You guys already have the numbers....

PLEASE PUBLISH THEM.

What's the delay? Can I help in any way?
It's not how much you spend on a bike it's how hard you can ride it.

Can you clone me so I have more time for my hobbies? :lol:

I thought I was done testing brakes, then Magura again offered to provide one. Since I'm sure many people would be interested in how it performs, I'm sort of in stand-by mode until it either arrives, or I know for certain that it won't arrive.

Even once the testing is wrapped up, I'll still need to find a bit of time to finish my report...it is perhaps 2/3s written, but still has a ways to go.

For now, suffice to say that the TriRig is the most aerodynamic mechanical brake currently on the market...possibly the most aerodynamic brake currently on the market, period, depending on how the Magura measures up.

Okay, that will keep me settled for a little while....:)

BRAVO, Brian! I just LOVE that bike!!!! And now you've got the perfect finishing touch. Would you be game to feature that through the "rigs" section on TriRig? Shoot me an email.

Yes for sure but just give me a bit to button up the build as I need to install the Specialized Virtue bottle on there as well as get the cable run sorted out finally.

Very nice :D black bikes rule!

Finally got the routing situation sorted out with a jagwire noodle. A bit tight but it does fit and is relatively smooth!

Super clean on my bike ... big props to tririg :D

Looking forward to the ride report and comparison to other brakes.

What were the weights on these with and without pad holders?

Is that the Pro aero stem you are using, this one......Image

or is that the 3t one?

Neither, the stem is specific to the scott plasma, I'm willing to bet if you use the regular evo stem you won't have a problem with cable routing.

Heres a side shot, still need to cut extensions and sort the fit out.

Looking forward to your thoughts/review. I imagine most of the Omegas will go on TT bikes, where braking is not as critical as on a road bike, so curious to see what you think of them on your SLC.

Man that front end looks sick!!!!!!!!! Looks like a diving hawk/eagle who's just pulled his head in tighter. I have cockpit envy :lol:
