I can confirm everything in that article. :sly:

The Matchmaker clamps for Dominion are shipping in November. They swap over to any brake purchased prior.

Shimano quietly launch Deore brakes in 4-pot variety.

Takes the current 4-pot pads.
Serve-Wave but no tool-free reach adjustment or dimpled lever.
I hope they don't have the trademarked Shimano wandering bite point or else you'll really miss the reach adjust.

A review.
Finned pads fit with a little dremel work.

Just chucked them on and went for a hoon today to get the levers set where I like them.

There's two things wrong with the above image. One of which is the brake adapter. 10 points for the other one...

Rotor looks too small. But that is kinda the adapter problem.

:lol:
So far, very few complaints about anything e13 that came on the capra, which i'm honestly pretty surprised by.

I've had excellent performance from the hubs over the last year. Rims are strong but a bit thin walled. Cassette shifted great for the two months I used it and I preferred it over the eagle that I was using before it. Their tires are excellent, I've got two single ply ones that I'm using as fronts on both my bikes.
