    Code RSC too grabby?

    I changed bikes recently and went from G2 Ulitmate with 180/180 rotors to Code RSC with 200/180 rotors. Now I'm having a hard time finessing my braking because the Codes feel a bit on/off and lock up very easily. Anybody else have a similar experience? I might try a 180 rotor in front to see if that helps. Alternatively, I'm wondering if trail riding at 165lb with a DH brake is just too much power and I should just swap them out for the G2.

    Ya I made the switch from guide r to codes rsc on one bike and like the difference same modulation but more power. Also have guides on two other bikes and love them too I have the rc variants and they are amazing too would love to try the new g2 ultimate to compare.

    did you try contact point adjustment? Iím only 140 lbs and run code rsc 180 rotors front/rear and have no issues modulating power and donít feel like the code has too munch power or are grabby

    Ok so I have more time on the Codes RSCís and have changed my opinion. They have a ton of power and feel like they have slowed down my riding as Iím using more brake then Iím use to vs the guides on janky parts of the trail. I have no data to know if this is true and finally hopefully in time I learn how to modulate the power a bit better.

    I swapped the Code RSC's out for the G2 RSC and feel like they do modulate better. Not noticeable when I'm going fast, but definitely noticeable on slow speed technical stuff.
