The Good: Great stopping power. No noise or squeal. They just work, and really well at that.
The Bad: None so far.Overall Review: I originally bought them for my XC/AM bike, but moved them to my FR bike when I found out the XC/AM frame was cracked. They were more than enough to stop the big bike (at least 40 lbs) on steeps and only 1 finger braking is needed. They also came on my new 29er and I couldn't be happier with them. No fuss and they work great. My FR bike originally had Avid Codes on it, which gave me non-stop problems. It's nice to finally do lap after lap with no complaints about my brakes.
