SRAM Guide RS Brake - Review
Shimano's are awesome... But I've picked up a set of the RSC's a few months back and they have been FOOL PROOF. Running them with the Centerline rotors, and metallic pads, I've had no noise under braking, and a lot less noise even when they get wet. I've had absolutely no turkey gobble, no running water, and not even a high pitch squeal. The modulation is per Avid/Sram usualness, but the power is in loads. The bleed has held fine upsidedown and rightsideup. In the cold? No issues. Hot? Nope. Really? Yes. I'm a HUGE fan of the fact that these are user serviceable. If my brakes end up needing anything in the course of their lifetime, all the part numbers and instructions are on sram's website. Try getting a "seal kit" for a set of Shimano XT's. Or a piston for that matter. Additionally, I've been seeing some messed up stuff coming in from Shimano brakes recently. Cracked, frozen, and damaged caliper pistons, black mineral oil, and terrible pad wear to name a few.
