I felt the same way when I first went away from Shimano brakes. It wasn't long though till I started to really see and appreciate a more linear brake feel for both racing and joy riding.

hollywood: pb's feature was pretty poor imo. despite their title they did not declare a winner or even rate the brakes. they also didn't try them back to back and each of their brakes were ridden by different testers in different parts of the world. how does that make sense in a comparison?

i do agree that dyno measurements would have been cool for this feature. can't imagine lab tests like that are readily available or economical though.

the high bb thing almost makes one wonder if the bike was originally designed to be a 130/140mm bike, then marketing got involved and said "we must have a long travel carbon enduro bike! i know, let's just put a longer shock in there."

then all the engineers secretly shook their heads in the corner.

Ok seriously, how are manufacturers still spec'ing bikes with long stems and narrow bars?! Almost every review I have read in the past four-ish years has stated something to the effect of: "we switched out the bar and stem immediately because they did not suit the bikes capability"....more

"notable sources have set the M6 as the benchmark in the enduro / trail category." consider your sources. have you seen those guys ride? have they ever raced an enduro event? where did they test the bike?

imo enduro & trail are not the same thing. one is a race and the other is just riding. different demands for each. i doubt one bike can be the supposed benchmark for both.

check out these new brakes. they use the same caliper as the current trail brakes but have a new lever and new rotors. looks like easier to adjust pad contact too. With Family Guide, SRAM has brakes designed for a rather versatile use of cross-country
