    Tektro Aquila Ball Bearing Disc?

    Anyone with any experience w/these brakes? There's nothing posted on the review forums. Would appreciate input.

    Thanks in advance.

    I've only seen these brakes in person once on a bike at a shop, but have never ridden them. I have a set of tektro IO's that weren't
    anything special (lower end then the aguila's) When they were adjusted they had decent power and feel, but they always needed adjustment, at least if your ride had any down hill (heavy use of the brakes) in it. I wouls say it depends on the price, if you can get them for cheap then ok, but if not save a little more and get avid bb5 or hayes mx-1 al least. They also have ball bearings but are known to be good quality.
    My two cents
