Default Re: Weak Ass Brakes

I have a box of brand X calipers that I could not get to work properly. I finally wised up and went to Avid Juicy calipers and they stop on a dime, plus they are easy to adjust. I also swapped out the stretchy bicycle cables for heavy scooter cables that don[t seem to stretch as much. I was shocked at how much difference these two changes made. Finally, I swapped the smaller 160mm discs for 205mm and the difference was even more profound. It all boils down to physics, the heavier the bite, the quicker the stop!!
