I bought a 2013 Trek Mamba and I hate the mushy brakes, the front especially. I use my bike for all mtn. I've bled them and did the, Hayes recommended, lever pull adjustment. Still soft as your grandpa... I stored it upside down in the garage, went to ride the next day and had "no" front brake pressure. LBS said not to store it upside down, air gets to the piston...really!?
Bottom line? My 2006 rim brakes were 10x more useful than these. I love the rest of my bike, but had no choice in brakes when I bought. I wonder why the industry went to unreliable hyd brakes when mech and rims were just fine? It shouldn't be too much to ask, when spending 1000 dollars, to have your brakes work..... Is replacing them my only option, or can I pair better lever/reservoir/master cylinders with them? Verrrrry frustrated
