Bled properly, they're some of the best brakes for the road.

I would have to agree with Rockethouse. I hated these brakes at first. But I now love them and think they are the greatest thing since sliced bread.

There are lots of options to upgrade...

+ better pads
+ new master cylinder
+ radial caliper with converted fork bottom
+ race brakes with new/compatible fork

I've opted for race brakes all the way around. Will certainly be overkill. I had to make a hard stop today and found myslef doing a bit of a stoppy without getting on it much...
