Bontrager Speed Limit Brakes

I got this prototype set of Bontrager Speed Limit brakes to evaluate. I found a "little" problem with the QRs... They could come open in use. As I said they were final prototypes and I'd heard the problem was corrected when they went into production.

Whenever I have to "lock em up", I like to start to feel some retinal detachment - the Big Daddy Don Garlits effect!

These are the most powerful brakes I've ever used.

I bought the frame from Ed Litton. He took it in for a trade on a custom frame and had it boxed up for years.

I'd never seen a bike like this one so I went full tilt weird on the build with mostly Shimano Deore XT MTB components. It's super light and climbs like a goat.
