theses brakes

The Good:

start out amazing. probably the best feeling stroke and lever feel you've touched (if you like progressive, formula style brakes). adjusting them is fun i guess?

The Bad:

dont be fooled. these things lose their feel within a year or so. they will become very inconsistent. even the hayes guys at sea otter couldnt bleed the back to their original feel for me. flimsy lever aswell.

Overall Review:

dont waste your money. if you want a similar feeling brake, go formula. i highly recommend shimano for quality, however (im on saints now).

Stroker Trails

The Good:

Good stopping power, reliable feel, easy reach adjustment.

The Bad:

It's hard to stop the pads from rubbing and the perch takes up a lot of room on the bars.

Overall Review:

I got these brakes cheap, and for the price they are great. If you are paying full retail price, there may be some better options.
