I love those Paul cable disc brakes, I bet they're as good as some of the budget hydraulic brakes you can get these days.

But they should be considering how much they cost.

the klampers are ok...definitely not as good as hydro brakes.

not to mention the klampers dont self adjust and theyre always rubbing if you happen to have slightly out of true rotors...prepared to be annoyed. i get the price, engineered, designed, fabbed in Chico...but they are indeed a lot of hype.

Just picked up a set of Yokozuna's ...hope theyre better than the klampers

Avid cable brakes are so shit I don't think I could ever do anything but hydros. I've had slx brakes running flawlessly since 2015 with one proactive bleed.

If I wanted bling for a build it would be hope

There are some cable calipers that work well, such as Hayes MX series (light spring action) TRP Spyre (two piston action) and Paul's Clamper (very stiff cnc caliper).

I ran MX4s caliper when I first built up my Process 134. They're older and a bit harder to find, but have an insanely light spring so feel very very good attached to some Paul's or Avid levers.

ever notice how the Spyre brake pads move within the caliper??? well, they do - makes you feel like you have a loose headset...very disconcerting.

I still dont really understand how the roadies think that cable actuated brakes are more reliable than hydro. ive never had a set of hydro brakes fail on me.
