Look similar to the Avids. Wonder if they squeak? Anyone checked them out yet?

I see they come with an updated incarnation of the old Shimano solution to straddle wire setups, the "one-size-fits-all, Shimano Knows Best" approach. If I'm going to have to go to the trouble/expense of buying aftermarket cable hangers and straddle wires to get the setup that works best for me, then I'll buy someone else's brakes, too.
