First, let me throw in a disclaimer, I have limited exp w/ disc brakes and these were new on a new bike. That being said, here's the review of the oro's:
these brakes are way easy to adjust for lever control, the design really does make mechanical and common sense. levers are real solid and don't slap around the way some others (hayes) do. brakes are quiet, even wet. they did become noisy as hell today but after I looked at them and noticed that the outer front pad was rubbing the rotor, took all of 2 min to adjust and they are silent once again. The only other brakes I've used on a ML are the avid juicy so I guess that is what I will use as reference. first off, the formulas are QUIET, which is not how I would describe the avid. As for braking, I found the k24's to modulate extremely well and have plenty of power, definitely, in my opinion, better than avid in both areas. All I can say is I really stopped being aware that I was using the brakes, fingers were just going on their own, tcob. the control was pretty amazing and effortless, really, REALLY enjoying these brakes! Anyway, hope this helps and no offense meant to you avid guys/gals out there. Peace!
