    Formula C1 brakes on Stumpy Comp ht

    Crap. Swapping mine for XTs. Had to bleed them after 2 rides. Now it needs it again.

    T1: brake power, ergonomic excellent, but the brake is crap, really. (Switched to shimano) (brake came on sj fsr expert as stock)

    I'm very picky about my brakes and run XTRs and Saints on most bikes. I've tried the C1s on a 14 Epic that I borrowed for 2 months time and they have perform flawlessly. I'm impressed.

    Just got my '14 SJ HT Evo...
    Front brake was wet around fitting to hose at lever. Tomorrow going to try to figure out what is up at this junction and why it won't hold a bleed.

    Not impressed. If it leaks/doesn't hold a bleed again I'm going to have SBC credit the LBS and try to just get some basic XT 785's. When I got this bike I had originally planned to not put any extra money into it (i have a horrible addiction to modifying!) besides basics like stem, pedals, then a 42t cog for poor mans 1X, but here now I am having to retrofit brakes. Garbage.
    Schralp it Heavy.

    Thanks for the thoughts. My new stumpy is supposed to come in any day now. So pumped to try it out.

    from Lapierre to Specialized I've only had issues with Formula brakes. Avid gave me headaches,Formula gave me real issues. XTRs took care of the problem nice and easy..
