    new dual post brakes for your road bike?

    They look cool appear to work well but will you buy new just because?

    The new 5800/6800/9000 calipers are claimed to have better stopping power, are lighter, have clearance for 28c, etc. For example:

    "The new 5800 front derailleur has a longer link arm and a new spring mechanism when compared with the last generation component.

    Shimano 105 5800 Brakes Features:
    •Improved efficient and controllable brake system.
    •10% brake increase in power (vs.5700).
    •SLR-EV with new symmetrical dual-pivot design.
    •Twin bearings reduces pivot friction.
    •Compatible with 28c tires."
    "The older you do get, the more rules they're gonna try to get you to follow. You just gotta keep livin', man, L-I-V-I-N." - Wooderson
