    Formula seems to have gone weight, power, .........................................
    .................................................. .................................................. .
    ..............................and last be not least, adjustability.

    I love my K18s that dont have the FCS.

    Who has the FCS and do you use it?
    Lead by my Lefty............... right down the trail, no brakes.

    I use the FCS on my K24's when I first set them up so my lever pulls are even, after that I tend to leave them alone, same with the contact adjustment on my J7's. It's a feature I like to have for sure and at this point I don't think I'd consider a brake that didn't have a functional pad contact adjustment.

    Now a tool less reach adjustment, that's something I can live with out. I mean come on, once you've set your lever reach, how many people change that? Once mine are set I put the 2.5mm allen wrench away and never touch it again.

    happy trails...

    I have found I use my FCS quite a bit. I have Megas ans K24s and love the Formula FCS system. I love being able to make small adjustments as pads wear/conditions change to keep the lever feel just how I like it. I would have told you I didn't care a bit about the feature until I spent some time with it, now I will never go without.
