Do You Know How to Build a Wheel? - Pinkbike Poll
I've built more than I can count. I worked for a small custom wheel builder for ten years off and on... Kovachi Wheels. RIP John

@WAKIdesigns: ??? "Poor modulation woody/metallic". Whomever's brakes you tried must have had zero clue how to properly set up brakes and/or had shit pads installed. Were they new or not burned in yet. My Hopes are each 3 plus years hold (Tech 3 /E4's) on my DH and trail bikes, wide range of modulation depend on taste. Don't overheat on extended DH runs (I live in Colorado so we have those) like mineral oil can. Every person I know running them loves them. Can be a pain to bleed, but I have never heard any say poor modulation. And, cheaper that a set of "Srams every two years" since mine will be on four years during next season. Ride what you like. However, everything is better than what we had ten years ago.

@Endurahbrah: if you use a squeeze bottle with a small spout to pour into the lever, not a big deal. Can be a pain on a shaky bike stand. But, right tools, right job. I will take Hope over anything out there now. That said, lots of good brakes on the market. yes, I am a fan boy.

@pbullard2017: I think that's it by looking at Google Maps of the village

@OzMike: I found Hope pads in that little shop tucked away behind the grocery store in the square (forgot the name of it)

I second this. I am only 165 lbs. I use the E4's on both my trail and DH bike.
