Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After upgrading to full DA 9100, this is the only piece that left me disappointed. The rear brake squeals after finagling, toeing in to different degrees, re-adjusting, etc. etc. The same issue exists with multiple wheel sets, and never was a problem with 2 different versions of Ultegra brakes prior. Aside from the noise issue, they also do not stay centered after hard use, and I have to continue to unscrew the centering bolt and re-adjust. Maybe they are X% stiffer and brake X% more powerful than the previous version of DA, but the new design seems to have sacrificed other qualities unfortunately.

Just got these in the mail from CL this week and mounted them. For the price ($350 or under), they seem to be a great bang for your buck.
The Product description is totally incorrect in some respects though and needs to be updated:
-The spokes are NOT internal on this model. Previous models of the solitude were internal, and they updated the design due to spoke breakage issues I believe
-These are not made in the USA/Utah. The box clearly said "Made in Taiwan" and decals on the internal area of the rim had asian QC markings, so that was kind of a bummer.
Besides that, they seem great for the $$ in terms of apparent build quality. I will update my review if there are issues.
