St. Nick came through with my brakes, and wow they are great! To test them out after the day I spent installing and adjusting them to perfection (more like two hours, but hey), I went down a long, straight downhill section of road with slick tires for max speed. I got to about 40 mph, and let it rip. The brakes are so freakin strong, that they stopped me within 30 feet, and lifting the rear wheel up with me back on the saddle. Super smooth action, pretty levers and brake arms, and two finger levers. They are easy to adjust, and the pads look like they're in for the long haul. The modulation and butter smooth action is a welcome relief to the tired old ProMax turds that I was running. I give them 5 stars.
