bought 3 sets and threw them all on my bikes expecting no problems. Breaks are breaks, never had an issue with a set of breaks in my life.... man was i wrong
first set of breaks i pt on my bike took my over an hour to actually set up, after 20 minutes of riding they just ended up releasing and i found myself constantly having to stop and adjust them just so i could ride. after a day of this i took them apart and inspected what was happening. Further inspection showed the distance machined in the breaks arms that sit on the break mounts of the frame were not deep enough, had to remove the copper fitting and file it down nearly 1/8 of an inch just so i could get them to sit right. after making my personal mods the breaks sat right on the frame but i still had issues with dialing them in. after a few days i got fed up and decided to use the other set of ditech i bought. with no surprise the identical problem happened (another sign that the issue is manufacturer mass production) Thinking maybe its my bike i resort to putting the breaks on my other frame... and just as before, same problems. In the end i bought 3 sets of these breaks, tried all 3 of them, and the only way i could even get them to at least sit right on the frame was by altering the design of the breaks myself, but when it came down to dialing them in, forget it, these things are garbage. i took them all off and just went back to my original stock no name sets, and amazingly there working with no problems.
for an inexperienced rider who just fools around at a park and doesn't do much these are great, for an avid rider who needs breaks to stay alive and do serious tricks, STAY AWAY FROM THESE THINGS
I would not recommend these breaks to anyone
Please note that i think Diatech is a great company, i use there levers for everything and truly think they do want a good product out there, i just think this one batch they made may have been a problem in there machining though, im sure in there next break release they will resolve these issues.
