At the end of pavement (679 meters) I turned around and headed down. It was a blast and the brakes worked great, at least as well as the 2006 Chorus brakes the used Merckx originally came with. The only shortcoming I noticed was squealing once the pads were roasted, so I'll try toe-in or changing to Chorus pads I have on hand.
Fun ride- I should do this everyday!
