Since 2017 Cane Creek has delivered custom versions of their eye-catching eeBrakes to the masses. Tempering the production to only two limited-edition offerings each year — once they’re gone, that’s it.

Cane Creek eeBrake El Aeseino red

The newest limited edition to the Cane Creek eeBrakes collection (and the last version of the year) is El Asesino — The Murderer. This sleek and limited edition of the eeBrakes is just what those monochromatic, murdered-out road rides need.

Each El Asesino brakeset comes equipped with black hardware, red highlights, dual-stage anodized badges, and all the goodness you’d expect from Cane Creeks classic eeBrake. This iteration is the exact opposite of the fun-loving El DT Miami Vice eeBrake release earlier this year.

Cane Creeks El Asesino features all the adjustability, stopping power, and head-turning style that comes standard in the eeBrake. Plus — they are super lightweight at 169g/pair for standard post mount and 157g/pair for the direct mount.

For those looking to update their ride, the Cane Creek El Asesino will be available in standard post-mount, and direct mount. Note that this will be the last limited edition version of the eeBrake available in a direct mount configuration.

Apparently they missed on El Cheapo.

…. “head-turning style”

Because just imagine these on the catwalk. Gucci, Prada, and Louis Vuitton eat your hearts out darlings. Such stopping power and style it gave D&G whiplash.

On El Relevanto as well

Apparently there are still hundreds of thousands of good rim brake bikes on the road, as can be witnessed at a Gran Fondo, and some of those riders like to upgrade but don’t feel the need for disc brakes for their riding. If this weren’t the case, I doubt Cane Creek would still be making these.

At $700/pr., to upgrade 2-3+ year old bikes? They’re going to sell tens of them..

Right… actually I hear that the full run of production of 700 was sold out in three days.

too much red in my opinion, less would have been more in this case.

Installed a set, in the raw mill finish, on my ti endurance build. They stop as hard, with equally predictable modulation, as Dura Ace or Sram Red calipers, but that’s not the hook for me. It’s the beautiful machining, the max leverage in the catapult style (Archimedes would smile down) engineering, and the overall look of mechanical efficiency that found me paying what many would deem an exotic price. No regrets here. I re-enjoy them every time I mount up.
