    Some of you might have noticed that one of the bikes we had at Interbike and during our grand opening had prototype direct mount EE brakes on it. Here’s a few more pictures for you. They’re weighing in at about 160g with pad holders but no pads.

    These would fit the same frames and forks as the Shimano direct mount brakes, right?

    Any idea when these will be available?

    Yes

    Any idea when these will be available?

    We don’t have an official date yet but we’re not expecting them to take long.

    Speaking of which, any word on FWB”s deal to bring the EE crank to market (whoops, let that slip – don’t tell anyone)? O.k., just speculating, haha, but check out the posts by madcow and me on http://fairwheelbikes.com/c/forums/topic/eepacenti-crank-cancelled/ .

    These will be a fantastic option for the Trek Madone, lighter than Shimano or Bontrager brakes and better braking than the Bontrager brakes, specially for someone like me running SRAM

    I use the Shimano DA 9010 direct-mount rear brake on my 2013 Madone. Unfortunately, the left brake arm/cable bolt (looking at brakes from below) stick out from the non-drive side of the frame a bit. This makes it impossible to use a Stages (inner crank arm based) powermeter as it will rub on that brake arm. See below (not my bike).

    So my question: looking at the design of these new EE DM brakes — is there a chance that the footprint is narrower on the non-drive side and that it might work with the Stages PM? Thanks for any help.

    Any news on these? My next frame will use direct-mount brakes, and I’d love to get a pair of these.
