@gonecoastal: Greg Callaghans won a few too, but no rider consistently riding a 29er has won the overall.

Testing 27.5 vs 29 With Vanderham and Gauvin - Video
@SickEdit: Yeah Sam Hill was gutted, he wanted to be on a 29er riding clips. Lets face it, the proof just isn't there for DH (admittedly over one season), and after 5 seasons of EWS where a 26, then 27.5 has won every season. Just remember, those under-developed DH 29ers were all touted as being consistently multiple seconds faster than the 27.5 equivalents before the season started...

Santa Cruz Nomad 4 - Review
@Gregorysmithj1: I've had one faulty Saint lever out of the two sets of Shimano I've owned long term. Therefore 1 failure out of 4 levers. Not exactly great wouldn't you say? Not to mention the shop I worked in had to send back near every single OEM Shimano brake in the 14/15 season for leaking and contaminated pads. I've had a customers XT brakeset replaced from near new for being 'potentially dangerous', though he did get a free XTR upgrade lucky bugger. By comparison I've never had a Sram or Avid brake warranty out of the following brakesets on multiple bikes I've owned over the last 10 years: 3 x Guide RSC (2 x Trail caliper, 1 x S4 caliper), 2 x Guide RS, 1 x Guide Ultimate, 1 x Avid Code R, 1 x Avid Elixir R, 1 x Avid X0 Trail, 1 x Avid Juicy 5. And until the sticky piston issue never had to warranty or excessively bleed any customers brakes. Reverbs and forks on the other hand...

You could get a YT Capra, they're 170 front and back, look incredible, and won't cost you nearly as much.

TRP G-Spec Quadiem Brake - Review
@TheRaven: But here's the funny thing, it's opinions like yours that drive the "silly" long-term, heated debate: "This whole argument centered over "modulation" is so silly. If you take "lever feel" out of the equation, Shimano's brakes are in another league. I mean you need SRAM's four-piston brakes just to match the power of Shimano's two-piston brakes. SRAM has nothing for Shimano's four-piston sets. And then reliability? There's no contest." Pretty aggressive argument no? I disagree so massively with that statement that I then have to give my opposite opinion, wherein I won't ride Shimano brakes on my bikes. When in actual fact yes, the difference over-all is small. Everyone just ride your damn bike.
