I saw that review, and was very surprised. The weird thing is at the bottom of the review it says that recently tested brakes will have a lower score because of the way they test things now, so all a bit crap really. The gripe was as you said, lack of power. I am not finding this and as I said earlier they are at least as powerful as my old mono mini's. They do the test to a certain pressure on the lever. The levers are short but I have no complaints whatsoever. I don't have big forearms and have no fatigue from pulling these levers, as hinted in the review. If you have to pull the brakes slightly harder, so what, it's not an issue at all for me with skinny arms.dparry said:very disappointing review 2.5/5 in latest WMB mag. strange as MBR gave them 10 a couple of issues again. My rear has just arrived to complete the set and i'm hoping the reviews are wrong. main gripe was lack of power... i never had any issue with old mono mini pros so as long as similar to that i'll be good.
PeteN, how they doing on stumpy? power an issue running the standard 160 front? i hope to get out this weekend and see that they are wrong!!! i wont be happy as sold my XXs to get them!
thanks PetePete N said:I think the Hopes will struggle with your scrub rotors. The gap between pads is only just over 3mm. That being said they don't rub at all either side front or back though the Hope discs do seem very true.
