Yeah everything is in. I went all spendy and stuff and bought a set of TRP CX-9s, thinking maybe I spend a little more money upfront and get something that really works. The fscking pivots are stiff on two of the four caliper arms. I'm so glad the pivots are made of titanium, that really makes up for the fact they don't work AT ALL.

So, until those get RMAed, I'm running full size Tektro V's with the 5700 STI, and indeed the braking is inadequate. What the hell was Co-Motion thinking speccing a fully loaded touring bike this way?
