Easy to set up, easy to find parts, good power, good modulation, can be even better with better rotors and pads.
The stock roundagon rotors are not that great. Get the CS2s.
IMO a much smarter buy than medium range or low range hydro brakes, especially if you ride a great deal. Changing a cable is much preferable to bleeding a brake system, but really top end hydros like Avid Codes and Hayes Stroker Ace will always have more power.
