shimano claims (backed up by some cycling mags) that their new DA brakes are 30% stronger than the previous models. does anyone know if this is due to the brakes themselves, or is it the leverage at the levers, or both?

i am considering the new DA brakes (need more stopping power) but do not want to change my levers as well. its only worthwhile if they will work as well on 105 sti's. any advice? thanks in advance - fooch

thanks 4 that - also, shim do not mention..

heh, heh. should have gone to the shimano site before i posted the thread..... they don't mention anything about improved braking strength when talking about the levers, only when discussing the brakes, so my thinking is that it is the brakes

btw, thanks for your reply
