Cat-USA road brakes "any sightings"(2 posts)

Cat-USA road brakes "any sightings"Velo Man

These very interesting brakes have been coming out since the Veges show, they look amazing, supposed to be insanely light (2 weigh less than (1) Dura Ace)and they are supposed to stop better than the others? It's duel pivot also. These have been coming since Feb? I wonder if this is the same thing as the propeller cranks that never came to be? The web site is interesting and got my attention. They were supposed to release awhile ago and held up because of a spring problem, this made me all the more warm and fuzzy about these brakes as they (Cat-USA) seem to care about quality control.Anyway does anyone know what the real story is. Oh did I mention these are not cheap.

I have a set on order.. the original ship date was said to be mid-march when I orderd them back in early feb. They are only about 2 weeks off so far.. I expect to have mine in another two weeks. I will post a review and pics when I get them.
