I can do an endo with the touch of a finger and they've lasted over 2000 miles so far. My only complaint is when they're wet - they still work quite well, just not quite as good.
I have to agree on the brakes...the pads do make the difference. Especially on the endo point!! So be careful when you first install them. They really grab!
