Strengths:    For those looking for replacement pads, you can buy the whole caliper with pads and rotor for $16 bucks at Blue Sky Cycling, which is less than I pay for replacement pads alone for my Formula brakes. Also check ebay for replacement calipers.

Weaknesses:    I do not own these brakes

Bottom Line:   
I do not own these brakes

Strengths:    Good brakes. Strong. Stop very well.

Weaknesses:    NO REPLACEMENT BRAKE PADS!!
WTF! This is crazy. Had I known you cannot get replacement pads I would have never purchased these. How freakin' stupid and illogical for this company!


Bottom Line:   
DO NOT BUY THESE unless you are replacing bad calipers and getting rid of your bike.

Strengths:    Smooth breaking
Quiet
Reliable


Weaknesses:    Brake Pads are great, but cannot find replacements!!

Bottom Line:   
I was excited to buy this. I knew they weren't top of the line, but solid construction.

The only problem, is you cannot find the replacement pads anywhere... anywhere....
If someone knows some compatible, please let me know... FUNN doesn't even have a CS number from their website (Funnbrakes.com.... no contact whatsoever....

Strengths:    Strong, very reliable, look great

Weaknesses:    Pads have worn a bit

Bottom Line:   
Love these brakes, they're stronger than some 203mm rotor mechanicals i've tried before and i have 180mm rotors, and the white callipers look awesome!
Definitely good for if you don't want to upgrade to hydraulic brakes but still want a good pair. Great for budget buyers, I paid £40 for front and back, which is about $46(ish)

Strengths:    None.

Weaknesses:    None.

Bottom Line:   
These brakes are available OEM only.

They are pretty nice. If you've got them on your bike, you don't need to replace them with other mechanical disc brakes. Only hydraulic brakes are worth to change to.

They say Avid BB5 and BB7 are better. I tried Avid BB5 but don't feel any considerable difference, neither in braking power/modulation, nor in maintenance.
