    Hi guys, I've had a bit of a problem keeping the disc brakes from rubbing on my Kona Unit X.

For example, there are the Mt-200 but those are just a small improvement from mechanical and they have the 2...

As far as i understand most shimano brake parts are cross-compatible, and...

    For most mountain bikers, the braking experience is as important as it gets. A brake set that you are confident in will make you faster. No, that doesn't mean bombing down hills at Aaron Gwin speeds thinking that a four-piston will save you. No, the better you feel on your bike the faster and...
