    Still worth buying Formula Oro Bianco for $200+

    Got a Bike shop near us that is clearing off there new Formula Oro Bianco brake kits (Front/Rear + rotors). Price for the kit is around $250 USD. Is it worth it?

    i just bought some k18's on closeout from chain reaction cycles. had ultimate juicys before these. can say the k18's are light years better than the ultimates. really not even comparable. like going from sorry v-brakes to really good disc's back in the day.

    That's a very old brake but they have a good reputation. All the Formula Oro line (Bianco, K18, K24, older Mega & The One) are very good brakes. At 250$, it's about 50% off retail price. I'd offer 200, they won't sell them anyways.

    I just found out you can still buy them from Formula. Close to the 200$ I proposed...

    Hey, haven't those been on eBay from I believe Crosslake sales for like $60 an end?

    Yes, yes they have, and still are. Formula Oro K18 start at $60 + $10 shipping. K24 are $90 + $10. Brand new, but without rotors or hardware. No one bids on them actually.

    The kits on the formula site are a really good deal. They're a bit under $175 shipped.
