    tektro brakes

    Anyone ever use these brakes? I see them coming on more bikes as of late, seen Ghost bikes that are coming with them on bikes over 2k.

    KHS Flagstaff 29er FS
    Neon Bow Trials Bike
    Norco Fluid 9.2 29er FS

    My SS came with Tektro IO's on it. My first upgrade on the bike was to change them out for BB7's. My son's bike has Tektro's on it, they aren't as bad as my IO's were, but he isn't riding a $2K bike either. It's possible that they make some decent brakes, but most of my experience has been otherwise. It's worth doing some real research on for you, because I didn't know SR Suntour made nice forks either, until someone pointed it out to me. But they do. So perhaps there's hope for Tektro.

    The Aquilas came stock on my Talon. They have worked just fine for me. Probably won't change em out for quite a while. Though hydros are mighty nice.

    Had the Tektro Orion, but wasnt that satisfied with them. Switched to the 2012er SLX -> way better.
