Anybody have any sugestions?
There is always Tektro I guess.

The bike will be running a 6700 build with Thomson and King bits all over. I dont really want to run Tektros. The VO's look good but are really spendy. What you say?

My winter bike has 6700 levers and Shimano R650 calipers with Kool-Stop salmon pads. The braking power is decent, but the combination of the 6700 cable pull with the R650 calipers is definitely a little weaker than a pure 6700 or 7900 setup.

I would choose the Shimano R650s over the Tektros any day.
