    Brake Question: The one fr

    I am having a bike built but have a few questions.

    I am looking at the Formula "The One Fr" brakes. I am 245 and ride in Michigan and NC. I do mostly trail riding. They are going on my new Turner 5 spot.

    What is the feedback so far on these?

    How do they compare to the k24?

    Other recommendations?

    I have them on my Pivot Mach 5. It simply is the "The One" forged caliper, mated to the RX cast MC and lever, so is a little less expensive. Power and modulation is great, awesome lever feel, this is compared to my previous Magura Marta SL. I weight only 165, run 180/160. Bleeding them is way easier compared to the Maguras.

    In the past I have cooked the Magura's when riding in Black Rock (freeride area near Salem, OR), so some longish and steep downhill sections. The Formula have been completely trouble free so far, and no drag at all using the Formula 1 piece rotors. Very easy to center, and they have stayed centered.
