The pictures have a hard time picking up just how deep the gloss is on the white but it really pops.

This is my second set of eebrakes on a bike. I am a big fan. Ive had a set on my SV for the last 6 months. I feel like they have more range of modulation than the excellent da9000 calipers. I cant really speak to ultimate stopping power since I live in florida but the ability to make slight adjustments at speed in a large group is really good. Compared to other lightweight brakes Ive used, these aren't finicky and hold their adjustment. I find the toe in on the pads a little tough to set up but once that's done, the rest of the setup is straight forward. Pad swap are almost too easy and I was nervous the first time I did it but I haven't lost a pad yet.
ee's are the best brakes out there I think. Stupid lightweight parts that actually work exceedingly well.

And that's one purty machine.

count me as another big fan of EE brakes. I wish they were half price and they would be on all my bikes.

The exposed carbon inside the fork is such a nice touch!
I've always wanted a crumpton!

I once owned a Crumpton, and I conclude that I've never seen a more sublimely built bike. Yours is simply gorgeous.
