Any thoughts on the KCNC CB1 Road Brake as compared to the Cane Creeks I got that came stock with my Moto IM?

From several reports from my testers and customers, the reviews are pretty good. Very cose to DA and Record with ower but light as Zero Gravity.
I sold a whole bunch if that matters.

Unless you really try to cut some weight, overall fell won't be a huge difference over the CC brakes.

Never used the cane creek brakes, but I had zero gravity brakes for over 3 years and switched this year to the kcnc brakes-- a little less stopping power than the zg's but not much difference at all- and the kcnc brakes are much easier to setup and keep centered-- only issue in setup w/ them was for using power cordz cables-- I had to drill out the adjusting bolt w/ a 7/64 bit to allow the power cordz liner thru-- otherwise the bolt would shred the cordz. Took all of 2 minutes to solve.

I had 05 ZG's and I thought that they were a great improvement. I switched out the stock pads for Swiss stops and they are just as strong as Record brakes and are really really light.

I been on them for a couple of months. Great stoppers provided you ditch the stock pads. I use SwissStop green for aluminum rims and SwissStop yellow for my carbon rims.

Thanks for the reply guys. Ill wait and see how my CC perform with the cool stop brake pads once they come since you say it isnt a big difference between the two. If Im not satisfied Ill be hittin you up Dirt Boy for a set of those KCNC. ZG's are way too much for me to justify at this point considering how low my skills and stamina are but I got my eye on them for a future upgrade.
