This review represents the exact opposite of my experience and that of everybody else whom I have spoken with who have these brakes. The feel at the lever is spongey and horribly inconsistent. After 3 bleeds the brakes still behave like hey have air in them. Braking power is amongst the worst that I have felt. Imagine the terrible characteristics of Avids only magnified.

These brakes are by far the worst I've ridden, and I've ridden the majority of models from Magura, shimano, SRAM, Hayes and formula. The C1 is a massive oversight.

Historically the euros have not needed an excuse for such antics...

Was that making fun of xc eliminator or just another excuse for a bunch of euro dudes to play around with each other in their underwear?
