The eebrakes are my favorite component on my bicycle. I have now been using them for close to a year, and I cannot find any faults with them. VeloNews just reviewed them in their most current issue, and the only fault they could find was their price. They are indeed pricey, but they do just what they are supposed to do. They stop brilliantly. They are also very light and really good looking. Craig Edwards has done a fine job, and I look forward to trying out his upcoming crankset when it is released.
