    Unfortunately, the Oro works great, but there's not much to look at.

    Sheesh....

    This place is not what it used to be. I guess only 2 people here own Formulas. The Magura guys win.

    Back in the day it was much more lively here, now it feels like a stale waiting room at the clinic.

    OK, imagine K18s on a singlespeed Niner SIR9 and K24s on a Niner RIP9. Got it?
    All problems in mountain biking can be solved by going faster, except the ones that are caused by going too fast.

    I was just trying to get a lively post going but I guess the only way to do that is to say that subject X is better than product Y and the Brittany Spears is a high class girl. NOT!

    Biancos with 160mm rotors front & rear. White Goodridge hose for the creamsikle look..

    Gonna see how I like the 160 up front may move up to a 180 if I want more bite...

    People tend to get more excited over products that fail.

    Formulas flat out work great & look cool.

    I'll play ball. My Biancos:

    Are you using Mixmasters? If so any chance you have a photo from the clamp side?

    Yes, they are mixmasters. I have them on both my Biancos & K24s mated to X.0 triggers. Brilliant setup.

    A view from a friend's bike with x.9

    Appreciate the photo. I just installed my Biancos last week and the clamps of those & my X.0 triggers need to occupy the same space on the bars in order to have the brake levers where I want them.

    Have the Mixmasters enroute to hopefullt solve this problem but was having trouble visualizing how they mounted. Your pix helps alot.

    That's more like it.....

    Formula porn!!!! All are nice rides and set-ups.
    I see the point of "If it ain't broke I won't complain about" view. It's very true about Formula brakes (except for my 4R's, they are a bit cranky sometimes but always work. I think it is because of the SS set-up I have)
    Thanks guys.

    Just installed Formula Greg Minnaar LTD!!!

    THESE ROCK
    Dan, great advice with these!!! I went the 160mm rotors but I have the 180mm as well, it's a bit of a tight fit on the Jekyll swing arm with 180mm but I think it's possible. At the moment these seem to have plenty of power with the 160mm!
