Don’t get me started on domestically-produced bicycle components. Be it Japanese, American, British, whatever, if a bike component is made domestically, I’m into it. The world of high-end, performance road gear in the States is thick and I’ve always wanted to drop my kit brakes for something different on the Argonaut or the Bishop…

I think I found the right match: Ciamillo is running a special on their Micro brakes. They’re only $299 from now until October 31st. After that the price jumps to the normal $430. Yeah, you can get Made in the USA brakes that as far as I’ve read, are amazing, for less than the price of Dura Ace or SRAM Red calipers.

Pick up the Ciamillo Micro brake calipers here, where you can read up on the improvements for the new 2014 design.

    I don’t know what you’ve read but they don’t do that well in shootouts. Worse than Shimano and only better than SRAM in a few cases. Save your money for something dual pivot… like the EE.

      Thats another +1 for EE Brakes. Incredible power and great modulation.

      • John Watson

        Yeah, I’ve been looking at those. Was going to get the CAM for the Bishop and EE for the Argo, actually.

    Well, I sold these to get the new Dura ace 9000 right before I went to france, 16k descents were often. I have no regrets.

    Has anyone out there had any real experience using these specific brakes? I’ve read some negative reviews of other Ciamillo brakes but if the kinks have been worked out this is a really tempting offer.

    I just received my Micros and am very excited to get them on my bike. Honestly, I’ve had Zero Gravity, Negative G, and now Gravitas carbon brakes from Ciamillo, and all have worked very well (including super steep descents at speed on Levi’s Granfondo, for example) for modulation and power. The original zero Gs seemed to have a little bit of play in the pivot after a while, but never really noticeable on the bike. The Gravitas carbon brakes are she I’m running on my main bike now, and they’re really powerful and rarely need to be adjusted due to being single pivot.
