My new bike is due to arrive shortly - Its an Orbea Orca specced with SRAM Force throughout and Ritchey carbon finishing kit.

Can anyone tell me whether SRAM brakes have their own specific blocks, or do they accept Shimano, Kool Stops, etc?

    Not definate but I'm fairly sure they'd take shimano shaped blocks, I had the same dilema looking for replacements for my tektro calipers.
