I keep coming across reviews for CODA disc brakes saying they're terrible yet I never see any for sale 2nd hand.
Has anyone on here had much experience with them?
Wondering as in the future I'm thinking of building a Raven up and noticed a lot of them came with the discs.

I've heard really bad things about these too, luckily the raven I've got is a first generation without disc tabs! To be honest i've never even seen cods disc brakes. I think these were the only bad things on the bikes looking through all the reviews.

A few sets came through the workshop at a Cannondale dealer I worked at, and the reason that you don't see them for sale is that they get thrown in the bin!
