    Hi spdntrixi!

    Did you buy the eecyclworks brake? How is it working? Could you give a quick review? I have trouble changing rear wheels on my Felt AR2 because the Tektro 750 brake-arm (or bridge between the brakes?) does not give me enough clearance to pull the wheel out without the wheel getting caught on it. Does the eecycleworks brake have a better "reach" - That is, do the eecyclworks brake arms have a little more depth that makes changing the rear wheel easier?

    Thanks

    On paper the ee brake has 2.8mm more clearance at the top but that all depends on the rim width and tire size you are using. I've got a 27mm tire on my AR1 that still contacts the ee brake when I try to remove the tire, but I've just become accustomed to knocking it out forcibly.

    A 23mm tire would have clearance I'd wager.

    Thank You SD!

    I use 23 mm Continental Grand Prix 4000 S II tires on the 3T Accelero 40 Team wheels (that came with my AR2) and on my HED Jet 6 wheels. Both wheels are 23 mm wide. Changing wheels requires a bit of nudging. The extra 2.8 mm would reduce or eliminate this nudging.

    Again, Thank You for the information - very helpful!

    Dave - can you point to these?

    No, I'm afraid I cannot until the manufacturer authorizes the OEM to do so.

    Thank goodness for the Garmin Vector S. I get 20% off through my team, which is a perfect option to fix this annoying problem and get a power meter that is actually more versatile than a Stages.

    Any one know if the new 4iii power meter will clear? It appears to mount closer to the bottom bracket and not extend as far radially as the Stages

    Yes, it will fit the frame.
    No, it will not clear the Shimano brake.

    Anyone know if the TRP T922 or T925 will work on the bike and with the Stages power meter? Are there any other brakes out there besides the Tektro and EE that'll work?

    Yes, there are several new options from TRP and Tektro as well as the FSA Direct mount aero brake that will fit the direct mount chainstay position and stages and Pioneer left-side inboard Powermeters.
