Podcast: 'Why We Ride' - Rob Warner & Eliot Jackson Interview Rachel Atherton
That was so good and time just flew by. Love this,Rach is such an interesting and confident talker. Would love to see Gee and Dan too. Well done both Rob and Elliot for letting it all happen naturally without constant interruptions. Very good interview.

Review: SRAM's New Maven Brakes - The Big Brake
Do you find your hopes have a high pitched squeal even in the dry? Not like wet rotors sound. Much higher.

@oatkinso: as you wind in the bite point the pads move closer to the rotor. You can literally see it happening! So if you want the pads to bite fast wind the pads in. If you like the lever to be really close to the bars when compressed (loads of pro riders set it like this) then leave it wound out. The only 2 brakes that actually work are the sram rsc and hopes in my experience. I have my codes wound in full. I like a really short lever throw that stops about 1.5cm from my bar. Check out someone like Adam Brayton or Joe Barnes’s brakes. They have their levers touch the bars at full compression. So you can fine tune the point of contact of pad on disc.

@stormracing: checkout rob rides bikes on YouTube. He's comparing them to his hope v4. says they're probably more powerful which is impressive. My mates v4 brakes are so powerful almost too much imo. Adam brayton uses the e4 instead so says it all really.

@oatkinso: well depends where in the lever travel you want to bite! i think you're not fully understanding the system.

@Tiefkuehlpizza: tbf you can work out their power looking at piston size in callipers and master cylinder piston size pretty much. looking at those you know the powers going to be high.

@javadown1969: mine are the same, instant contact after about 1cm travel. think he's bleeding them with contact point out.

you're doing something wrong. my codes are very short. i can't stand too much lever travel.

he says the lever feels exactly like a code. so thats a pretty short throw in my experience
