I had a recent Velo News where it looked like everyone was riding Mafacs again or something. What are the hot cross brakes on the Euro circuit these days?
Henry Chinaski said:Yeah, those Spookys look just like my old Mafacs. Do they work better?
I haven't used the Mafacs so I can't compare really. They are significantly lighter, and Spooky makes a carbon fiber set... Set up is very easy (though not as easy as the Paul Neo Retros), and I think the stopping power is close to V brakes.

I wanted to ask him this before too. I knew it was Bukowski. Definitely a wild cultural shift between there and here.atpjunkie said:Chinanski....so how does a Bukowski like existence work with cx racing? I was a bar fly roadie and did pretty well, can't imagine it with cx.
Wait, you're saying there's a big gap between the hard-drinking Bukowski lifestyle and the cycling lifestyle, or between roadies and crossers? I try to compartmentalize.Spunout said:I wanted to ask him this before too. I knew it was Bukowski. Definitely a wild cultural shift between there and here.
I couldn't watch Bar Fly to the end, reminded me too much of home.
