A make I've not heard of... interesting!

Anyone know anything about them? Look pretty retro, and a shade cheaper than Graftons/Paul's go for!

gradeAfailure,

Acor is low end stuff. They are the brake equivilent of Lada. Don't think they are machined. Do have a pair of Acor's. From a distance they look a bit like Speedcontrolers. More closely you notice they (mine) aren't machined and the system simply can't work!

Now I read the ad for the second time I notice the seller mentions 'CNC-design' and 'geschmiedet'. So he doesn't claim they are machined, in fact they aren't.

Yeah, I thought as much - just see if anyone confirmed my suspicions! Mind you, some of the Tektro stuff's not too bad for mid-range alternative...
