Finally took the bike for a short spin. I gotta say those Record OR brakes work great. I only tried them on the road as I still haven't recieved my shoes yet and it's a little wierd riding a bike with Eggbeaters and a pair of sneakers. They slowed me down from 50 Kph with no problems at all. I didn't feel I needed any more braking power at all.
They also modulate very well. All in all I'm pleased so far. Hey they are early 90's tech and I'm not advocating every one run out and get a pair, but they certainly don't warrant the bad rap that may have been implied and for a person who wants a Campy bike you REALLY aren't giving up anything my going with Campy canti's, at least this model. I'll give another up date when I get in the fun stuff. I guess that is were the modulation or lack there of will really be aperant.

I have a weakness when I see something that is actually worth something for a reasonable price I get it wether I need it or not. One never knows what the future holds. Although you probably see I'm letting them go.
