Curious what you think about the TRP’s. I run the DHR Evo’s as well, and would be hard pressed to use anything else. Best brakes I have ever used.

Absolutely love them. I don’t think I’d change at this point. The lever feel and adjustability, the modulation and power. They’re great. Doesn’t hurt that they’re the best looking!

how are they to bleed? are they using mineral oil similar to shimano?

Mineral oil, and very straightforward. I have the Park Tool bleed kit and it probably takes about 10-15 minutes per end in my experience!

How does it climb compared to other am/ Enduro bikes?

Pretty horribly up anything technical compared to my Chilcotin, but it is workable. Climbs just fine up anything smooth. Not a light bike though.

Is the weight close to an alloy Stumpy, about? My friend just put down on an alloy Stumpy, I've only test rode them. Didn't remember them feeling too heavy? Curious about how your Status would feel compared to that. Still looks like you got a great bike tup

They are about the same weight. 35ish lbs.

3rd on the TRP hype train. I love my Quandiems, and the bleed process is nice and easy.

Mark me down as #4. I had tektro Orion 4 pistons on my marin and they where really good for what they where.

Easiest brakes I have ever dealt with. You just hook them up to this bad boy, press start, crack a beer Beer and wait.

That’s pretty cool, but damn, for $500 it’s more than the cost of the brakes!

More for shops that have demo / rental fleets where you're doing multiple brakes a day.

Work in progress now looks like a bike again. Need to shorten the fork from 190 to 170, waiting on some 612 parts calipers, adjustments being made to carbon cranks, so stock fitted for now.


Ready for all the mountains!

Damn that frame looks total bad*ss with those dual-crown forks. That's unusual. Love the look, color scheme, awesome bike. Bet that would make a good DH'er.
