Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Love the shorter throw of the 9100 levers. Grips and set-up are definitely improved, the feel of the hoods is similar to 9000 but they don't seem to get as gummed up. Same great braking feel and lever modulation as 9100.

NOTE: Would recommend running modern shallow-drop bars with these levers given the tad shorter lever throw. Older style bars with a deeper drop will limit the ability to set up the lever throw in correlation to how close the pads are to the rim when not engaged.

Shifting is a bit lighter than DA 9000 but every bit as solid.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

33 years riding and competing, I've ridden saddles like the Turbo, Titanio 200, Fizik Aliente Gamma, and recently was on the R3 Arione. Although all were comfortable enough, I have to admit I really love the feel of the Fabric saddle. More comfortable on longer rides than the Arione, and I might say better constructed. The only thing to beware: seat rails are larger diameter than most and as such I had to use a longer bolt in the rear clamp of my carbon post to accommodate the increased diameter of the rails. No biggie, but be prepared.

Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Beware. I am a professional mechanic and bike racer for 30+ years and generally LOVE Chris King components. This BB works for everything up to Dura Ace 7900. However, the Delron inserts in this BB are loose on the new DA 9000 crankset and you will notice lateral movement when the cranks are properly installed. Unfortunately I found this out after installing it. I'm sending mine back. I'm still giving this a 5-star rating as I have one for my Shimano XTR cranks that I love. However, this problem needs to be addressed and communicated by both Competitive Cyclist and Chris King.
