Brake caliper upgrade?(6 posts)

Brake caliper upgrade?powpow
Apr 22, 2003 8:12 AM
I have a new Specialized Allez Elite that has pretty decent parts for its price range ($1000ish, almost all 105). I'm slightly bummed that Specialized skimped with generic, heavy brake calipers. Is it worth the money to upgrade to Ultegra calipers? Gracias.

If, everytime you look at your bike, you're bummed at the no name brakes insted of filled with joy and anticipation, I'd say it is absolutely worth the money to upgrade the calpiers. Otherwise, screw it! The only thing that brakes do is slow you down.

I have a pair on order. I just talked to Chris, the guy who's running the show today. He says they should have all the backorders filled by next week's end. Which means I should have mine by next week's end as well. I will post a review when I get them.
