    Do the BR445/Alivio brakes really suck?

    Other then that they are really cheap thats all I know. These would come on a 2011 Reign 2 so I was assuming that they were ok but a must upgrade item, thoughts?

    Yeah ive been wondering the same thing but havent been able to find any reviews.
    Id like to hear from anyone with some good hard trail riding on them.

    Caliper looks the same as SLX. Shimano rarely does anything bad so it probably has a little less stopping power and flimsier lever construction. Still probably much better than Elixirs!
