I just sent back a set last Friday for a refund (love that Nashbar return policy!).
I used them when I built up my wife's Orbea; she's complained about them since day one. I added Kool Stop salmon pads but she said the brakes still felt too mushy. I just put on a new set of last year's Ultegras and she loves them.
BTW, Nashbar has those Ultegras on sale so that might be worth looking into. The only downside to them is the old-style brake shoes w/o angular adjustment for toe-in, but there are after-market ones available (like Kool Stop).
Today, I believe my jurisdiction ends here...
