Soon available DUTCH productsJan Gerrit Klok

Seen today : Spooky topmount brakelevers. Not as nice as Empella's or probably Pauls, but I expect the Spooky' to be around €40 retail or less.
They also announced (through a distributor rep) : alu and carbon chainguards for single ring setups.
I'm getting the topmount levers for my spare bike, it's too cheap for Empalla's and too expensive for ignoring the advantages of topmounted levers.

I'm planning to soon try out Mini-V's with QBP Problem Solvers, these have a wheel to increase the cable pull on the brakes, should improve tire clearance and lever feel, make it less mushy.
Cool, very cool...triangleforge

Any idea on when they'll start to produce & ship?

The carbon guards were featured in de Fiets already last year or earlier this year can't remember, along with the carbon spooky brakes all build on to a vaganini bike(or something ith a name like that). Guards looked very nice and the overall look was very nicen.
So the topmounts will run about ? 40, hmm feature upgrade:). Do they like a lot like empella's and oversize or regular fitting?
