    Shimano goodness

    I just want to say: Shimano really seems to have it going on with brakes these days. Rode one of my bikes yesterday that I built up using Alivio hydros. Low-end yes, but pure bliss. Plenty of pad/rotor gap. No rubbing ever. Great stopping power. Smooth! And quiet. no noise. No vibration. Just pure, smooth, stopping goodness. I found myself wanting to hit the brakes for the pure joy of it.

    Just buying them as I write this. $78 for a set, I think that's a fair price.

    I've only ever seen them offered as take-offs. Good brakes though -- basic, but good.
