    Formula B4 sl's help needed
    Hi someone said that they have stopped making B4sl brakes.

    I am looking to buy a set. The UK dist is still stocking them and they are on Formulas website.

    Do you think they are worth getting

    Thanks

    You're correct, B4SL brakes are not made anymore and were updated to the B4 Pro+ model for 2004 by Formula. The B4SL were a great brake and the world's lightest at 630g for a whole set.

    Some people had problems with master cylinder leaks and the odd broken part and Formula came out with an update kit to cure these problems before the end of the SL model. I'd be asking if these brakes were updated or not. I'll bet the kits are no longer available.

    Maybe Brakemeister Thor (the N.Am distributor) will be along soon to give more and better advice.
