    QUAD brakes

    Hi there all,
    I wonder if anyone here ever heard/used disc brake system called QUAD QHD-1? Is it any good?

    Got them on the front of my SS, picked them up from my LBS for £10 as they had them lying around without the mounting hardware or disc. They work really similarly to my Hayes HFX and although the lever is a bit slow to return I think it just needs bleeding properly now and they will be running really nicely. I bought them after I read good review of them in one of the UK bike mags that rated them very highly for the quality and performance at such a good price, what you looking to be paying?
    Do people think you are strange??

    Do you??

    ....Then you may be on the right track.

    Ok i got a set of there mechanicle BMX disc brake kit. need altering a bit. still not set up properly so i havent ridden them yet.
    Do know much about ProStop 2 disc brakes?
