    The pain... the agony!

    I was down at Speedway picking up my newly de-busted bike and spied the Oro brakes out on the showroom.

    And now I can't sleep, I can't eat, I close my eyes and all I see are luscious Oro brakes floating behind my eyelids.

    Someone stop the pain! Someone please post and tell me they are junk!


    (I seriously doubt this is gunna happen)

    . . . but why do you need brakes anyway living out in the middle of the flats? But, if you are going to have brake lust, you should lust for the new Formula "The One" - same weight, 20% more stopping power. http://www.formula-brake.it/index2.htm

    Why would you want 20% more stopping power? They are already way too grabby.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    The way I see it, the new design will mean people will be offloading their old/nasty ones right? And I'm first in line.

    (and just because you live "out in the flats" doesn't mean you RIDE there)

    hmmm, I was hoping for lots of power, good modulation & no grabbiness. Descending to Indian from Powerline Pass is hard on brakes (3,600 foot drop or something) if you are a big guy - and I've yet to find brakes that did it w/o some kind of issue. If The Ones are good maybe Nanuq will score the rejects . . . .

    Yeah baby! Or at least a chance to RIDE some and see how they work?
