yup, ridden a pro stop. never liked the annoying rattle of the rotor personally.
I hear what you're saying about annoying rattling on.
cantis in the wet on a decent length downhill/ gradient downhill dont work!
the point? retroking wanted brakes that work & cantis dont work very well in the dry, hardly at all in the wet! I dont see what the argument is, someone wants brakes that stop, I suggest disk brakes. Pretty simple.
Nonsense! You talk in absolutes about something that is relative. Have you not seen road racers descending mountains which make wales look like chump change in the wet? They use road calipers which aren't a patch on cantis!
Chris is correct, it's all about evolution. I think most people were happy with cantis until vs came along. Then discs came along and they were where it was at.
when you come to wales & leave the flatlands of warwick john I'd gladly illustrate my point
.... although even you've recently got a bike with disc brakes on, so point made yeh
For what purpose? What's your point? I can't help but feel you've other things to prove here Mike
I've ridden in Wales and all over the UK thanks.
To go back to the original point del wanted to know what brakes worked. He's happy with his Onza cantis.
