Whats seems funny to me is that this is an actual 27.5 blur TRc. This bike may be more popular for the men if SC doesn't have something else up their sleeves.

Shimanos are decent brakes no doubt but lack modulation. Already seen tons of carnage from shimano lockup syndrome. They either death grip or off, no scrubba function like the avids. Maybe avids are better for fast riders who dont brake just scrub speed. Shimanos are for...more

Should have done a quick proof-read. looks like I posted the early version. At this point I've had 2 months on these brakes. I'm light, at around 160, so I think that's why I didn't have power issues with the 160s. If 180s were available at the time I got them I would have went that route and plan on going 180 for racing enduro.

Also, a little background i guess is I come from racing dh on the east coast, cat 1 and have been to collegiate nats a couple times. So, I'm another semi-slo racer with hopes of a pro license with out actually being a professional. So I would say i put these things through a pretty good beating. I did notice a bit of noise after the first month, but a quick clean of the pads and rotors with some emery cloth and I was good. After racing DH, I don't expect brakes to just sit there and work perfectly forever. They do require a little bit of maintenance like pad/rotor cleaning and setting the pads for my preference.

I think the big thing I noticed and like about these over Shimano's is the lever feel. I'm not a huge fan of the hard hitting lever because I feel you "bottom-out" with the throw and then you start modulating. At this bottom-out point it requires more effort to get modulation or more power. With the softer feel of these I never feel as if I'm bottomed-out in my throw looking for more power and my fingers and hands are just much more relaxed. Thus the efficient lever throw.

If I can remember I'll post an update in about 2-3 months to see how everything pans out over time.

best idea yet. Maybe instead of petitioning places to hold a race petitioning usac for venues other than sun valley. We should make it known that these events NEED to be held together. mtn biking is all the disciplines and theres no reason to separate ... more ยป
