I recently built a new bike from the frame up, and switched to hydros.
Front is 203 & rear 160. The calipers are your run of the mill Shimano (not sure what pads). Nothing fancy, but I took it on its initial ride yesterday in the rain. I wasn't too impressed with the stopping power.
I was trucking down a hill when I needed to slow to make a sharp turn, and the brakes were not there as much as I would like them to of been. So much that I was thinking my old v brakes would have been better.
My question is could this of just been because of the rain, or do the calipers not have enough in them for 203 rotors? Better pads in order?
