The Review
Very good for a show bike or if you want the Lightest of everything.

Braking Power nowhere near Campy Record or Dura Ace.
You need to get either Shimano Dura Ace Pads or those from KOOLSTOP to make the brake work close to the other two mentioned.
Set up is a pain as there is no adjustment for arm / shoe alignment - you need to make Shims for this.
Expensive - i paid S$800 from USA mail order.
