    Today is a glorious day

    Today, I will remove the Avid Elixer CR brakes from my Singlespeed and replace them with XT Brakes. And there was much rejoicing.

    The local forest creatures are thankful that I will no longer be activating my virtual air horn every time I touch the rear brake.

    Small children will no longer flee in terror as my bike screams at them.

    My rear teeth will finally settle back into my gums from where they've vibrated out over the last few months.

    All praise Shimano...and may Avid rot in hell!

    Today is a glorious day

    And, as expected, the XT brakes installed flawlessly. Hose trimming was a breeze and no bleed was required. They are solid, strong, and silent.

    A glorious day indeed.
