im leaning toward the five euro classic xt setup.. but we will see if it stays so low. the campy setup ends real soon, and its tempting.. but i dont feel like getting burned on ebay tonight and i have no idea if theyre all that good.

Poke around this site, they have a lot of things, although sometimes they are hard to locate. I've ordered from them many times with no problems.

If you want to pay too much money buy the Paul Neo Retro or Touring brakes. You can use them, then sell them for almost what you paid. Good luck on whatever you choose.

Those 5 euro XTs are a pain to set up. Not the easiest to find decent pads for them either. The new Shimano are much easier to adjust and use standard V-brake pads.
