i just posted this old magazine ad from +10 year ago.

has anyone ever bought one of these?
or where they never sold?

it looked like a good idee
what went wrong?
They were very expensive, and you still had to use bits of cable to connect the hydraulic line to the derailleur. Which you can sort of see in the pictures from the ad.

I always thought those looked like a great idea.

They had that same advertisement in many magazines in that era (at least from around 94-96, maybe more) but they were quite an expensive product so I never tried them. I remember seeing a test in either MBA or Mountainbike where they were said to work very well. I also thought it very cool that they were based in San Dimas California just like Bill and Ted.

I think pulstar hubs came from San Dimas too. Wasn't that right near san clemente/dana point?
Looks like it's a little North of Pomona and a little West of Rancho Cucomonga. I'm not familiar with the LA area so I used Google Earth to look up San Dimas California. It's pretty funny because if you zoom in far enough it shows you where "Bill and Ted's High School" is. :D

safe lines

Found one in my toolbox, Tried using it on my DH bike in the "90", Worked really good for a while, Then the pistons would get a little grit in them and start acting finicky. Finally got tired of playing with it and went back to cable. Cool little system!!

Did SAFE also make hydraulic brake actuators?

I saw some "thumb" brakes on some tri-geek handlebars the other day at the shop. They weren't brake systems, but more like interrupters. They were pretty cool but no identification on them at all. Looks like the same fittings as the pictures above for the shifters.
