the best cable disk brake
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
most of my bikes that will accept disk brakes are set up with these. Cheapish, easy to maintain, and really easy to adjust. I took a pair on the 2nd highest paved road in the world and was totally comfortably with my stopping power dropping thousands of meters in just an hour or two. The road version is awesome for cross and touring; just make sure you have the correct brake for the pull you have on your levers.
Fantastic Disc Brakes!
I have a set of these brakes on my GT LTS-3 and they are fantastic. I have ridden at several downhill parks with these brakes and I have never had to worry about my brakes not stopping me. I have used these in the rain/mud and it did not affect their performance. In my opinion these brakes are unbeatable for cable disc brakes.
