Nice setup, nice brakes. They work fine with STI or regular drop bar levers.

I have Shory 4´s on my Sunn, but not completely satisfied. With the standard spacing pipe it´s impossible to set them up with more than like 1mm of clearance. I will have to lose the pipe and find another hanging mechanism to get them to act like canti´s ought to.
I also have a major squeek in the pads, but that´s probably just my own fault. Stopping power is acceptable by the way, at least in this setup.
