The above is a common misconception in regard to brakes. You cannot tell a caliper's braking power based on feel. The aftermarket stuff certainly looks cool, but when it comes to function, it's really tough to beat Shimano calipers.
Getting these Williams 38 carbon clinchers for the new bike. The wheels will be here tomorrow and hopefully the bike this week( been a 4 week wait so far on the bike)
That's cool, everyone is different. I personally am not willing to compromise function for weight anywhere on my bikes and especially when it comes to my brakes.
I have different brakes on all of my bikes...I honestly can't say any are better at stopping my bike than the other. Hmm, now I need to go do some testing.
The claim is that you shove the fin into your ass and it keeps you straighter on the saddle. I'd rather something a little misaligned than having that up my ass. It's been sent to UCI for approval, would love to see it in TdF.

Every fool has his minute.
I bought a $99 Lezyne carbon/Ti multitool.
Every time that wheel turn 'round,
Bound to cover just a little more ground!
Ordered a Trek Domane 5.2 today.
I am only joking around, but saving weight at the expense of braking is a choice I'll never make.
Honestly I don't see how you can sleep at night, knowing you could drop almost 300g by dumping those boat anchors that you call a "wheelset".
