I'm looking to swap out my Shiv 2012 brakes and wondering if anyone knows what options are out there? I know there are the tririg's Omega brakes, but they are a tad on the pricey side.
Has anyone been able to work out some alternatives?
I read online that apparently Shimano direct mount brakes work for Shiv 2013+. Was there a change to the bike so that it can accomodate it?
Was hoping to get a U.S. Contact.

Like I said, mine was glued then failed on the first ride afterward. No way I'd stop whining til I got a new frame. Every time I fly down a hill and hit a bump, I think about that seatpost failing.
Save the $$$ for a sleeved top/suit or a better helmet.....or tunnel time.
They're lighter than the alloy bars, but stack height is an issue as you can't drop the pads to the base bar. I put a -ve angle stem on my shiv and the result is working well for me. Mind you, if I'd just dropped the original bars I would have gone faster. I also tried some USE Tula and was surprised that they didn't seem to test much faster for me.
I suppose what I am really saying is that just a bar swap won't give you great ROI, maybe look more at how you are setup on your current bars.
very easy to do (not rocket science); if someone like me could do it...
the only tough spot is the power cable if u want to have the battery in the seat post.

Anyway, I currently have a 2013 Shiv Comp Rival (pretty much stock everything, including the DT Axis 2.0 wheels). I am looking to upgrade my wheelset to Zipp 303s and a Stages power meter and keep my current wheels as trainer wheels. I am thinking that I will need to replace the brake pads (provided the Zipps fit), but will the new brake pads work with the DT wheels, should I take the bike out on them?
Again, I apologize if this has been asked and answered - you can direct me straight there.
Currently have a 52/36, going to 53/39.
Changed a crank out to then install a Trimax crank? I did with zero problems. The only reason I no longer use it is I bought a power2max that came with cranks/rings.
