Brakes- Good News/Bad News

The Tektro brakes on my wife's bike suck.

Good News:

Some guy at steered me to a site selling rear 105s for $15 each! Only rears, but considering Dura Ace pad refills are $10/set, you can see what a bargain it is. I'm in! So I ordered them.

Bad News:

I ventured down to Penn Cycle to buy a Problem Solvers brake bolt extended threaded sleeve for the front fork. They want $10 for it. It isn't even made of titanium. Not to blame Penn, since it is really QBP that stinks this one up.
