  • The Good:

    affordable, light, works great.

    The Bad:

    Not crazy about green but don't care about color coordinating that much. It's only a little green. Quit crying.

    Overall Review: I currently have this on my We the People. Easy to dial in. Apparently it's too hard for some people. Dial it once and ride til you change frames. They work great on chrome wheels. Stops so good.

    cheap light and thats it

    The Bad:

    the are a pain to dial in they took me about an hour to get these right and if you get the red set expect them to be pink instead

    Overall Review: i wish i would have got a better brake set (demolition vulcan)

  • The Good:

    Cheap price and mass production made me think these things were the hottest breaks on the market.

    - Cheap

    The Bad:

    I don't know where to start with these things. I have never had issues with breaks in my life, usually i can take any set and throw them on, give me 1 minute to dial them in and i wouldn't have to touch them till my tires needed a change. man, what a diffrent story with these things though.

    these breaks DO NOT hold any dialing you do. after you set them up your going to have to re dial them in an hour. the design inside the screw caps is TERRIBLE. The caps slip out as soon as you start crashing or hitting anything hard. I use back breaks religiously, i NEED them for half my tricks, but when the dial on these things changes after every jump, you never know how much pressure to apply, thus every trick is a gamble....

    - cheap design in screw caps does not hold your set up well
    - pads that come with are VERY CHEAP and might as well be plastic
    - adjusting the tension on the springs is like defusing a bomb, takes FOREVER to get it just right, and after the fact your just going to have to re adjust them again in an hour
    - getting equal stance on each side of the rim isn't even possible, once again, this comes down to the cheap design inside the screw caps.

    Overall Review: 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 ...

    sticks to bars, one finger braking, makes the bike stop

    The Bad:

    a bit too bulky...any chance for a goldfinger slim? only had replace the clamp bolt once a couple months ago..I had stripped it

    Overall Review: I have had mine since 2002 back when I was rocking some narrow bars...I love that this can clamp on bends...

  • The Good:

    great value for money

    The Bad:

    the brake pads are terrible, had a few problems with them in the beginning

    Overall Review: These brakes are very very good value for the money, cheap and great! The only let down was the brake pads, and an upgrade will make these brakes so much better. Well worth the money

  • The Good:

    It has a classic design and feel

    The Bad:

    It's good but the original tech 77s are better.

    Overall Review: These are good levers, it´s very much the same as the tech77s, and the clamp should last a very long time even for flatlandres with its tall clamp thing there, but mine stripped quite easily! I'm a terrible mechanic so maybe that's the reason, but anyway, I've never stripped a tech77...

  • The Good:

    lighter than 990s, easy to adjust

    The Bad:

    mine came with just one open end, not both like the picture

    Overall Review: It's a great brake. It's strong, and fairly light. The fiesta pack works great, specially with chrome rims. it's simple and good and such a huge relief from the pain that was to work with those 990 pads, but for the weight watchers, there are lighter brakes, but the difference is minimal, so be ...
