Come across a set of these fairly cheap(don't think they are particularily expensive new?).
Worth a punt? Under rated? Over rated?
What do we think of em people? :D :D

I seem to recall they had pretty favourable reviews :?

If theyre cheap enough, should be as good as any.

Had a quick read up and the calipers seem good but let down by the levers.
Which is good because i plan to use Saint levers :D

Cheap, heavy and no reach adjustment on the leaver, but other than that quite good.

Ive used a front one on and off for.... about.... 8ish years and not really had any problems. They aren't as good as say a Hope six pot but I wouldn't expect them to be at the price.
Only thing negative to say about them, was it can be hard to find cheap pads :roll:

UKbikestore claim to have ebc green pads in stock, wether they actually have or not remains to be seen :roll:
My Shimano Saint master cylinders, that i plan to use, have quite a bit of lever adjustment so i might be onto a winner :D on not, we shall see :wink:
