|Avid in the garbage bucket, it belongs there|
- I would say this is pretty much the worst brakeset ever made, but like the ancient philosophers say:
- Napoleon: This is pretty much the worst video ever made.
- Kip: Napoleon, like anyone can even know that.
Substitute "brakeset" for "video" and you have it. Do you really, really like bleeding your brakes? Then these are the brakes for you. Worked OK for a few months, then they required increasingly frequent bleeds to keep working. After about a year and a half they would only work for a week or two. And Avids are a pain to bleed compared to Shimanos, much more fiddly. And of course they use DOT 5.1 fluid which is toxic and eats paint, dogs, and small children.
- The brakes only lasted about a year and then they were thrown out and replaced with cheap Shimano Deores to great relief. Mountain biking is much better with brakes that work. Cheap Shimanos work very well.
