So I did not plan on getting new brakes but .....

These brand new in the box EE's came up for sale locally for a deal so they are mine now. The price was to good to past up and they will work really well with wider wheels so I could not resist

In the back of my mind it sound fun to get this bike in the 12 lb range so they will help with that to.

You'll like the ee's. Initial setup is a bit finicky, but very nice once done.

I have a set of EE’s and they have been on 3 different bikes - no issues with setting them up. Works as well as Record brakes, but much lighter and easier to swap brake pads.

I assume they were the ones on the local CL. Did you pay asking price? I guess I have not paid enough attention to the PL sales to know if the price was good. I've wanted them because my 25 tires have wrecked my rear SR caliper by being so tight.

Yes they where on CL, he thought they where G4, but they look to be G3 so he saw willing to go down on the price.

Nothing complex. Housing length needs to be spot on, particularly in the rear. Just be sure that its a "fair lead" and it'll be ok.

I would stick with Campy on a Peg, you can use the single pivot rear and lighter weight pad holders to get close to the weight of the EE brakes.

I only went with the EEs as a BNIB EEs poped up on my local CC and the guy was willing to sell them dirt cheep.

Also I do like how the EEs blend well with the same modern industrial look as the Seven 622 SLX frame

Down a few more grams just for fun




.

The below 3T Ergonova LTD bars came from a PLer, I sanded them down to expose the UD carbon as I thought it would look nice with the frame. (The Easton EC90 SLX3 I removed are going on the Master build)
