open topic, for anything cycling related.
i had tektro brakes on my roadie, but swapped them over to ultegra , the difference was amazing, with the tektro they felt mushy and i was never really sure i would stop in time.
with the ultegra's the first time i applied them in anger i almost put myself over the front of the bike...woohoo... world of difference

Try adjusting the setup, then. My road bike has an endurance geometry and an angled handlebar stem and my weight distribution is the same as for my tourer bike. Road bikes don't have to distribute your weight further forward: there are things you can do to mitigate this.
Some of the feeling of instability must be the setup of your bike, and maybe how you are riding it.
It takes a while to be at one with the bike - but eventually you will think the bike through corners. You don't steer it as normal, but you steer it with your body, if you understand what I mean.
My Giant TCR Advanced SL (and the Trek 4.5 I have too) are both supposedly race geometry bikes but both of them are very stable, the Giant more so.
I'll have to find out - that sticker came off it long ago.
But to be perfectly honest, the Trek doesn't get ridden much at all now. I can't stand mechanical groupset.

The S-Works helmets that were out a couple of years ago are noisy, with the strap that sits behind your ear being attached to nearly the outside of the shell. At the right speed I had a job to hear the person next to me in a group.
