I'm sorry but I'll never be able to trust any stoppers with the Avid/Sram logo on them. I bought a 4600€ bike which came equipped with Sram Guide brakes and they've been nothing but a headache since I first rode the bike. The seem alright after bleeding when coming out of the store, but as soon as I hit some more demanding trails, they just don't perform. The gap between the pads and the rotor becomes larger on every run down the track (getting to the point where the lever touches the grip) and as soon as they heat up a bit, they get incredibly spongy (even after bleeding and happens on every single one of the Guide brakes I've tested so far). The only half decent feeling I managed to get, was by replacing the original Guide levers with some DB3s I had laying around. It got much better and the spongy feel went away, but the increasing pad/rotor gap problem still exists. Its a shame that such a big player on the market is able to mess up something apparently so simple to the point where when I see a brake review like this and the brakes actually score well, I can't stop but feeling like SRAM made some $$ roll under the table for a good review. As far as I'm concerned, on the brakes department, SRAM won't be on my wishlist ever again.

Two questions. One, why aren't the Lapierre guys on the new bike? Two, when will the video editor for these films get the volume of the music an the interviews to match? I hate how one second I have to turn up the volume to hear anything, and the next I'm turning it down to save my...more
