haha thats funny, who uses brakes anyways? i pedal thru rock gardens.
I always wanted a set of those, $1000 is a bit much I remember a brand new pair went on ebay for like $400 a year ago
I always thought they were shifters...not brakes.
it is pneumatic shifting. not air brakes.
huh, I sold my set to a guy that works at E13 for $150 a little while ago. I bought them from Chris Firth for $175 so it was well worth the $25 to play with them. I think $1,000 is overpriced. Parts are nearly impossible to get. A shimano tech gave me some extra parts a while ago since I couldn't find some of the wacky threaded fittings anywhere. The schrader fitting was american on the fill end and an unusual metric thread on the other end. They are a piece of art though.
Honestly, the XO shifter with x9 short cage that I have on my DH works better plus you have 9 gears rather than 7. You also don't need to fill it every few runs. So if you want them to put on a shelf, go for it. I would not install them on a bike that will be ridden.
Agreed, and definitely overpriced even if they are new in the box
hahaha wow what the hell was i thinkin??? hell if it was air brakes we would need CDL's to ride our bikes. lol
The guy did say that he paid $1000 for them... Then he says to trade him something "interesting" for them. He is not trying to get a grand for them.....
