I have a pair on the rear. Cost me £50 off e-bay from Poland. Nice and light. But i have seen pictures of them cracked.
I fitted KCNC blocks and alloy bolts and saved even more weight., 26grams.

Cheers fella.

Hopefully if they were to crack there'd be some sort of warranty??

Does yours work/perform ok??

I found them easier to set up than the KCNC and they stop me as quick with good modulation. They came in lots of colours too(from the seller i bought from)
Less than half the price of the KCNC or extralite and only 10 grams heavier.

great...

That's good news cos I know you prefer uphill, which doesn't even necessitate brakes to be fitted to your bike.. :wink: :lol:

Location: Mammoths deserve to be cloned. From what I've seen in 'Ice Age' they are jolly good sports.
Mine flexed quite a bit. Couldn't keep them setup the way I wanted for long. It could have been down to me though.

The brake levers lack feel, but I've gotten used to it.

For the money, vs KCNC, worth it.
