Hey Maddslacker,

I do have mechanical disc brakes.

What’s the benefit of the upgrade? Bigger disc, better quality parts…. And are they typically "bolts ons". While I’m pretty mechanical, I would rather ride em then wrench on them.

Also, I like the advice to go faster and brake less. I was following that mantra a few weeks ago when this happened. I have another similar scrape from my ass to my ankle. Crashing sucks!
