Bex Baraona Off Yeti & Without 2024 Team
The situation sucks for sure and sorry that she lost her seat, but she should have composed herself much better than that. Especially when you are looking for a new contract. I don't think it was a performance thing at all, it was a budget thing hands down and she should have seen that coming and been a bit more proactive. When you company goes consumer direct and listing 35% etc, let alone you see youtubers/ambassadors losing their partnership the writing is on the wall. Welcome to the recession

Interview: World Cup Brake Tech with TRP
Honestly, its not a bad brake great consistent modulation and awesome braking power. When you look at it from a racers perspective, that's all it needs to do. From a longer term perspective, I just could not deal with them anymore. The Tektro shit quality really comes to life when you least expect it paying 600 a set for a brake set. A few of the many things on the reason why I dumped mine.... -Caliper Halves were not mounted even -Why do they use a T15 for the master cylinder caps.... T10 or T25 is MTB world otherwise use a allen flush nut -Caliper nut screw seal is unevenly cut leaving a lot leaking -Pads wore more in the back pistons than the front. -Cheap ass pins holding the brake pads are hollow at the head so they snap off under 2nm of TQ if that after numerous uses, -they're too cheap to provide you new pins when you buy a new set of pads -and they take forever to break in, at least 2 full rides before the final bit becomes alive, yes I watched all the TRP how to videos and all I did was wake up my whole neighborhood with them howling -Shit lever design, fully indexed in you have a 20mm gap still to the bar (Thank go for Freedom coast to produce levers for this) But that means another 120 out of your pocket So thats about it on those guys

@hitarpotar: Yes that is correct, I liked the T3 lever shape versus the more straightened one on the redesign. Other than that internals remained the same for the most part both with a linear piston set up. Original lever has a nice light feel which was cool but just not my thing, I wanna feel some pull back. Other than that the quality just was not to my liking as mentioned with the bleed port screw housing around it cracking, the clamps are cheap, as well as the hardware holding it together. I did not like the variable bite point (At least I got on the two sets I owned) when temps came up on a charging DH

Interview: World Cup Brake Tech with Hayes
So in recent years I have ran, Hayes, Hope V4, and Trp. I could not deal with TRPs Tektro quality and the fact it takes a whole day to bed the pad and waking up the whole neighborhood at 2am just, just too many things that bugged me about them. (Price, need freedom coast levers, sticky pistons, terrible tapping of the cylinder, who uses a T15 for a bleed port? they do not give you pins when you buy new pads..... and once all set and done its about a sub 800 setup between brakes, rotors, bleed kit and adapters and levers. I could go on all day about it) I found Hayes had the best clamping force and final bite but I did not like the variable bite point I kept getting when temps got hot and their cylinders, were a bit cheap in my opinion, the bleed screw port/housing snapped on me when I was trying to rethread it. (I swear I was only using the allen bit to reattach it, its just a cap. It does not need any tq nm spec) And onto Hope loved them, consistent lever pull, quality, basically opposite of the above. But a I found a key thing was the final bite was nowhere near the others especially on a sub 200 lbs rider with mostly steep terrain in southern california. So I did a Shigura setup in the DOT world and did a T3 Hope lever with a Hayes Caliper, MTX pads red in front and gold rear with Galfer Shark 223/203 rotors Awesome set up so far, I am about one month into it and loving every bit of it. one thing I need to move down the front to a 203 rotor, I am finding it cooling/ optimal temp is not being reached and cooling too much but other than that so far for a 200# experienced rider Im loving it. Curious to hear others upkeep ideas on the Dominion as, I'm always looking to hear other techies ideas and approaches!
