    These brakes work great until you need to bleed them. Next time I'm going to get a different style.

    Pros
    Stops well, doesn't fade
    Good lever feel and shape

    Cons
    Pain to bleed them!

    my 1st hydraulics... love 'em! Going from v-brakes to hydraulic disc's are like night & day! There's probably better out there, but can't compare to anything else since these were my first... so far, they're great & they stop me effortlessly.

    Pros
    CHEAP! I bought a complete set for $50 on eBay.
    Easy to maintain... I've even created my own bleed kit from spare parts in the garage (only piece I had to buy was a syringe)

    Cons
    bleeding can be messy (at least my first attempts at it were).

    great brakes just hard to bleed. I own the FR version.

    Pros
    They get the job done and are reliable! Havent had a failure yet..

    Cons
    Hard as hell to bleed! I tried 10x with the stupid little bottle that comes with the kit. Doesnt work! Got a big medical syringe and it did the job 1st time.

    If you are new to disc brakes these won't dissapoint. If you've had other hydraulic disc brakes they will dissapoint.

    Pros
    Decent stopping power. auto pad adjustment unlike mechanical brakes.
    You can pick up a set on the cheap.
    More power than mechanicals
    Better wet conditions stopping than rim brakes

    Cons
    There are a lot better brakes out there. Weak compared to other models.

    great breaks for a more enduro geared xc bike. little bit heavy for purely xc.

    Pros
    Have a good balance of weight and power. lots of power to stop, don't fade on log descents.

    Cons
    pad's dont stay centered and tend to rub, when resting the pucks they drift for a while before settling.
