    They're guides, intended to guide the tire between the brake pads as your mechanic from the follow car changes your flat tubular in mere seconds.

    Ironically enough, I have ultegra brakes on my cannondale. I guess they're similar, just not as big. I didn't put two and two together that they're the same thing.
