First Look: SRAM Guide Trail Brakes – Power, Precision and Control

First Look: SRAM Guide Trail Brakes – Power, Precision and Control
No kidding.... I'm impressed enough to post this about how nice the weekend was with the brakes. as I mentioned, I was a formula guy for the last 4 bikes I had, and now I'm on the Guides. Sorry formula, you're R+D department should buy a few of these for the lever feel, and use the old k24's for the modulation (they were awesome in the day!). oh, one last thing, I did cut my hoses to fit, without bleeding the levers - honestly! unscrew, snip, screw in the new thingy, put the other thingy on and re screw back together. No bleeding at all. After two days I can say I won't have to bleed them either they got pretty hot today on a 1000' downhill. And still so quiet!! happy camper here :-) both with the brakes and my new best friend my Rallon.

First Look: SRAM Guide Trail Brakes – Power, Precision and Control
I've got to add my experience somewhere... seems good spot here- about where they fit in the lineup and how they compare. First, I've been a Formula fan for the last 10 or more years... this year my new Railon came with Formula T1's supposed to be the bomb. Well... if this counts I never beet my strava times on the new bike over the old bike ( Trek Scratch with K24 special editions - they were awesome brakes). So why is that I wondered... I've got BOS front and back and couldn't get the front sorted out and the back, always was going 'pang, pang' which seemed to be the back end locking like brake jam then getting tracktion. my new bike was just not my best friend like i was hoping. And riding my old bike... just still was more comfortable. i was even going to put the k24s on them. Just finished my first weekend with the new Guide RSC. Let me tell you. my bike is new again! And its smooth like butter on the same home trail I've been fighting. .... did you hear that? exactly, those discs are killer quiet!! And smooth on the braking side. And the lever feel - about perfect. Modulation - my T1's were nervous brakes, like I couldn't imagine. I bled them three times, and a shop bled them, to try and get them "smooth" in their grab and feel. I cleaned the very first time a techy steep switch back that I almost made with my formula's... today, perfect. And both front and back is running so smooth! Like the BOS are famous for - today I also ran full open on a section I hadn't with the formulas since the last steep part of this section was super loose and closing with tight corners. I was skipping down that like I had a skip rope.... today?? butter.

Pinkbike Poll: Should Enduro Transfer Stages Be as Tough as Pro XC Climbs?
earn it to burn it... its what enduro is about. There is no "race" up the hill other than a set time when you should be hitting the next stage. Perhaps the timing for next stages could be relaxed a bit... but keep them epic!

Nygaard, you can still watch the first 45 minutes where schurter was up on the pack by 30 seconds or so... Riding like a machine. About then was when absalon took over as it seemed schurter had burned up all his nitro and was left with only regular unleaded to finish the race.
