Bam,

I want them because they are cheap(I got one from my friendly Supergo shop for $ 10.00). W/ the right pads I can dial the brakes to be almost as strong as Vbrakes. I like the black not in your face color. Cheap...Did I miss something?

Happy Trails,

No, you didn`t miss a thing. I mostly hear people looking for the high end CNC`d brakes coping the old Mafac canti or Dia compe`s old version (980). I`m using 980`s on one bike with XTR pads( work great). On the other I have 983`s with Ritcheys red pads ( not enough power ). I want to find two more sets of 980`s or Shimano`s original XT`s ( the triangle shaped ones). What pads are you using??

I currently use Kool-Stop pads(Black ones)w/ LX Canti's for the rear. Kool-stop(Grey) for the front w/ Control Tech Canti's but not enough power( I will switch that soon). Are you talking about the Diacomp 980 brakes? If so There is this guy in ebay who is selling a set of 980's( I think) Nice looking brakes but I think he is asking $ 40.00 for it. Go check it out...

Thanks Mitch. 980`s you couldn`t give away up until recently and then only a crosser or crosscountry tourer would want them.
