Made the move over to TRP DH-R EVO’s after my last two sets of Shimano brakes both had wondering bite point issues. We couldn’t solve the problems no matter what we tried.
Peace out Shimano. The TRP’s have been solid and powerful everywhere. Including on my 50lb E-ride.

Skyride folks seem to be fans too. This is my.first experience with brake fade and it's worth spending money to solve.

For those Deores go 8” rotors and the finned metal pads if you haven’t already.

Or just go all in on Magura. I made the switch a couple years ago and my only regret is not moving sooner.

The only downfall to the maguras is the magura pads they are pricey like 80 bucks a brake for their race pad which is kinda like sintered. The galfer pads are a decent option the metal pads are a bit noisier but work good..

How much $ did the TRPs set you back? They use shimano pads correct?

TRP use shimano pads? Had I known that I probably would have gone with them when I upgraded my ebike brakes. I don’t like the idea of needing obscure parts at the last minute.

Biggest turn off for me and the TRP stuff. I'd end up buying a bunch of back up pads just in case.

I’m using shimano but I have replaced 3 sets in 4 years. When they work they work. One set wouldnt keep compression. One set blew a seal. And the other I broke the lever and I couldn’t just get the lever. I’m not really impressed but it’s what I have.

I use the type j pads with the fins as they cool down quicker. And yes bigger routers.

As to Johnny’s point I was an avid/shram user for years. They are hard to bleed. Need to be bled often and squeal when hot. shram doesn’t support their product. I broke a carbon crank on my very first time out and no warranty so eff those guys. I also heard that Jeffrey Epstein was a shram guy and used avid as a safe word

Folks,

What brakes are you using at SS? Last few weeks the brake fade is getting real (scary) and post-bleed & new pads it's not really helping. Not sure if there's hope for my deore 4pots, but after bailing yesterday I want a solution! What are you guys using? What do you love? Figure the higher temps and sand everywhere isn't helping. Should I go full-saint? Feels like a lot for a trail bike that doesn't go gnarlier than Double Dog, but whatever works.

I'm a 205lb dude who probably uses his brakes too much if that makes any difference.

Bigger rotors and MTX ceramic brake pads and you're good to go! MTX pads kick ass.

Hillary Clinton sells shimanos with a wandering bite point out of a pizza joint basement.

I should add that, when I upgraded my rotors, not only did I go bigger but also thicker. I don’t know how much that helped but these new rotors are great.
