Made me a racer
After saving my nickels and dimes, I was able afford these Californian made brakes. First of all, I'm from San Francisco bay area where everything is already expensive as high heaven which SF realtors are already establishing what they call "affordable housing". Anyways, being from California, I take pride in Californian made stuff especially for my good ol' bicycle. So, when I was able to get these, I was thoroughly happy and content with the looks and after riding them, happy with the performance.
Now, I ride a classic steel road bike and these compliment the bike perfectly! Especially with some gum wall Pasela tires, the two go hand in hand in classy aesthetics. Making hipsters weak in the knees at the sight of my human propelled machine.
The performance of these brakes are top notch! And that security in stopping gives me confidence to whiz down steep hills and making motorcycle sounds with my mouth 'cause it feels like I'm going that fast!
Aesthetically pleasing and with the stopping power that (if it were harnessed) could power a city for a bit. Pros:
Light, handsome, and oh so powerful Cons:
None so far Would Buy Again:
