- Trickstuff, err, stuff.
I had some direttissimas on order back in September (for March delivery) and cancelled them when the maximas went live. As it’s kickstarter there’s no way to swap orders…
I’m not riding at the moment anyway, so not the end of the world, but still. Better to find out now than nearer/after the delivery date.Posted 6 months agoMbnutMember
Had a feeling this might end up as an open ended wait.
Better to get a good set eventually than a bad set sooner I reckon.
Hayes went on the bike this week…. fingers are crossed that they feel good and don’t let me down.
Scotland in the wet next week, should be z good modulation test!Posted 6 months ago

That is all.Posted 3 months ago
To be honest, as utterly terrible as the website is, once I had placed the order and had a direct contact, he has been brilliant over email. They’ve sorted me out with stuff that is showing as out of stock on the website, and got stuff out straight away, so I’m not massively worried about getting hold of spares, should they be required.
The instructions for bleeding however, look somewhat terrifying… (they’ve done it perfectly in the factory, but tarts like me insist on having frames with internal routing) http://webedition.trickstuff.de/en/manuals/PDFs/161212_Entlften_Direttissima_en_KL.pdfPosted 3 months ago
Not ridden them off-road yet (stupid foot…) but riding them down a really steep hill has revealed they they are a different level of ridiculous when it comes to power, but well modulated enough to not punt me over the bars at the first hint of squeezing the lever. Seems they have gone live on the website too, just a 9 short month lead time…
As for if they are worth the wait/money, probably not. There are plenty other brakes that are good enough, for 30% of the price of these, available straight away. But these are, by some distance, the best looking, best feeling and most powerful brakes I’ve ever used.Posted 2 months ago
What I paid?
€1100 for the brakes, rotors, mounts etc
Another €100 for a bleed kit and 4 sets of pads.
Another €25 for hydraulic fluid (inc shipping.
Still don’t have bleed blocks, but I can improvise.
6 month lead time.
They are now on the website for €1100 for just the brakes, no rotors or anything, and it’s a 9 month lead time.Posted 2 months agothepuristSubscriber
some guys saw you coming
The OP has pretty much agreed that they are very expensive, but also that they are very (very) nice to use. Also if you go back to the first post you get an inkling that buying these brakes (and the rest of the kit) is as much an ‘up yours’ to other issues as it is about the kit. And if it makes you happy it’s worth it. #ForzaTomPosted 2 months ago
