|I have a new set of record 10 brakes. I have heard that they do not function as well as Dura Ace but are lighter. Should I sell them or keep them? Anyone tried them and found them lacking?|

|I have them (full record setup) on my merlin with vector pros. I've had no problems slowing down from serious decents. I do like Dura ace brakes a little better because the tension adjuster makes it easier to take the wheels off without messing up the brake setting. Wouldn't go dura ace based only on performance.|
|How are you removing your wheels?||DY|

|Are you taking your wheels on and off with the threaded adjusters at the brake? Those little buttons up on the brake levers, they do the same thing only a lot better and easier.........with NO brake adjustment necessary.
Seriously though, the levers of the Campy's have the brake release opening feature, same as the flip up cam on the Shimano.
|Shimano levers + Record Calipers = this problem...||Spunout|

|To fix this issue: Replace all Shimano labelled parts on your bicycle with ones stamped Campagnolo and your brakes will be fully functional. ;)|

|I ride Dura Ace except for Record Brakes. Picked them up used and they rock. So far every time I grab them my bike slows down or stops.
Personally I think they look better than DA anyway.

|I found with my mtb that going to aftermarket brakepads is best. Koolstop is the best I have tried. The compounds are just better. Don't sell, just replace pads, if it is a matter of stopping power|
|Beautiful. No open pivot. Good design F vs. R. Need ergos. nm||Spunout|

|Unless shimano has changed their brake design recently, my biggest complaint was that they worked too good. Campy brakes take a little more effort to operate, but you're less likely to unintentionally lock up a wheel.|

|and get some black Mavic brakes - look good; stop good, too. I'd rather have more grip in the back wheel than the differential brake gives - mine's chorus. I've got mavics on another bike and really like them.|
|Diff. brakes are an option||cxer|

|you can get Record with equal brakes or differential front/rear. It is an option only available for Record.|

|Chorus brakes are available as equal or differential too.
I have read plenty of reviews saying Shimano DA brakes flex more than Campag. Personally its all in the head/pads!!
|Not true, I have differential Chorus. -nm||SnowBlind|
