Strength:

Strong braking! Easy adjustments to wide rims.

Weakness:

Since it's a single pivot, the brake sometimes becomes misaligned under heavy riding as if the brake to frame screw needs to be tightened. Minor in my opinion.

I bought for cheap as I found them on ebay from a guy who wasnt a good wrench. After fiddling with them to get them adjusted right, they are great brakes. I love the way they look and theyre strong enough that I don't worry about them on descents. One of the best bling items I bout and expected it to suck. I was pleasantly surprised that they worked as good as they did.

Strength:

bling factor, light, rare

Weakness:

springs need regular adjusting, pads don't stay put, finish flakes and cracks, rubs on 25c or larger tires, little fasteners on the back side tend to rust.

Junk. The pads don't stay in place unless tightened down until the finish cracks, the springs require regular maintenance and adjusting for the first month, they're expensive, gaudy, and only 40 grams lighter than $100 SRAM Rival. But there are only 500 in the world and they do look pretty Bling. Even if you get a great deal like I did, be weary b/c the resell market for top-tier brakes isn't so hot. 2 other guys at my shop bought them and they have the same problems.
