Pros: Cheap compared to discs, quiet once I got them adjusted, flawless braking except in the worst conditions
Cons: Adjustment was tricky
Recommendation: I ended up using an old canti brake trick to get them adjusted - I coated all the washers, spacers threads and pads in beeswax. The was helps everything slide against each other more smoothly while moving stuff around, then holds all the bits in place while you tighten it down (plus I like the smell). I am on my 3rd set of pads on these and they are not going to be taken off even though I have a set of Avid BB7's in my parts bin doing nothing.
