These are my brand new Bruce Gordon Dangerous cantilevers. They're expensive as hell, but I couldn't resist.

Anyone know what a set of these weigh without pads? I was about to get some pauls neo retos but these are so much nicer looking. Can anyone who has used these brakes comment on performance verse pauls? Pauls are a good bit cheaper but these look soo much better and the rare factor is a plus as well.

Being a Star Wars geek, I guess the brakes' design worked on me subliminally.
