Review: Hope's Race Evo E4 Disc Brakes are Beautifully Made, with Lovely Modulation
@Minikeum: Maybe Hope, not TRP. I run TRP brakes on my bikes. With the TRPs, you want more stopping power, you just squeeze harder. There is linear connection to lever movement and amount of power going to the rotors. For the those used to the "no brake"/"all the brake" style of brakes (Shimano Saint/Zee) it can feel weird at first as you seem to have less braking power for the muscle memory of the index finger. But once you get used to the ramp up, you won't go back. TRP is great too because they use Shimano pads.

Review: Shimano's All-New XT 4-Piston Brakes
@Primoz: Newer TRP Trail hydros are the answer. The only downside I can think of is TRP's the lack of true "integrated" clamp mechanisms. Unless you a bazillion levers on the bar, its not as much as problem as it sounds like on paper. Even with my small Trump hands, I have no issues with Sram shifters and TRP brakes side-by-side on the bar. I run TRP on all bikes (including cable Spyres on my road/gravel bike). They use standard Shimano pads, the newer ones are easy to bleed and they have modulation for days.

Destination Showcase: Detroit Lakes & Cuyuna, Minnesota
@xfire7: No need to rethink as the Crew does not get state money. That money was awarded to the MN DNR, Parks & Trails Division, by the legislature, thru bonding. The Crew ≠ MN DNR. http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/input/environmentalreview/cuyuna-country-trail/eaw.pdf - Page 9, paragraph 1. This is the EAW for the proposed trail expansion that bonding money is paying for. This document was written by the MN DNR. Being a state recreational area, the funding has to come thru the state by statute. The State does not award the money to the Crew who then awards it to the MN DNR. The state awards it to the MN DNR directly. The relationship between the Crew and MN DNR is pretty easy to understand. Its similar to the relationship that MORC has with its many land holders. The difference between those land holders and the MN DNR is that the MN DNR imposes more requirements on us as we are dealing with state land. (See previous comments about trail conditions and parking passes.) Just as Dakota County Parks green lighting a certain amount of funds for Lebanon Hills mountain bike trails doesn't mean MORC gets that money, the state allocating funds for the CCSRA doesn't mean the Crew gets that money.
