I always laugh when i read back to back posts on a review that contradict each other. Or even better is when they a.) blame the equipment for their own faults and errors or b.) endow the equipment with magical powers.
Review one says, These brakes are so flexy and weak, I can't belive they are still on the market, They will slow you down, but wont stop you.
I will never buy these again.
Review two says, Stiffest, strongest brakes I've ever owned, Perfect for high speed decents or abrupt stops in city traffic. I will never buy anything other than these.
Review three says, These brakes caused me to crash, I was going riding along the painted white line in the rain, around a curve, while going down hill, while taking off my rain jacket, and went to brake and crashed. This is a Horrible Product!!!
Review four says, These brakes are great, They may be the 2nd best the company makes, but now I routinely drop people on the climbs who are riding the top of the line brakes, and my sprinting has improved.
