    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.

    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!

    Wow, stunning looking brake!
    So overengineered it’s like art.

    What rotors are you running with them?
    The lever throw adjuster seems a little delicate though. I guess you wind it in and adjust once fitted.

    Rotors are 203mm trickstuff ones. Fancied 223mm on the front, but Fox won’t warranty the fork for it 😕.

    Not sure about the adjuster, but will see what happens when I fit them. (tomorrow 😫)

    I could fit them to my bike this afternoon if it would help?

    Just had a look. Seems a shame they haven’t overengineered these either and made them floating or something similar. Not bling enough to match the brakes 😀

    TBH I don’t mind that too much. There is a little unnecessary engineering mind, the edge of the rotor is chamfered…

    There’s always Intend Aero rotors if I have a hankering for more bling…

    Lovely stuff. The rotors are chamfered because it makes them easier to insert between the pads.

    Something I’ve always struggled with… 😉

    Seems ze Germans have a sense of humour. There was a leaflet of some description in the box, I assumed it was a warranty card or some such thing. On closer inspection it turns out it’s a guide to funding your next purchase…

    Funding options?

    Those tiles could do with regrouting.

    They look….trick!
    Very nice engineering. Only things that put me off are price and spares availability.

    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.pdf

    Lush… and in my favourite colour scheme too.

    A mate ordered some too, think I’ll pop round for a cuppa at the weekend!

    Enjoy.

    my favourite colour scheme too.

    Wasn’t my choice, I’d have gone black and silver, but there wasn’t an option to change the stock colours.

    Very, very nice mate.👍

    Worth the wait!
