Its not that its so good (though the old Hayes G1 calipers are pretty bullet proof), its that its a direct 22mm mount caliper. Several companies such as Trek, Fisher, and Schwinn made very nice frames with these 22mm disc mounts on the chainstay. There are some adapters made that have mixed success, but the 22mm direct mount is clean and works great.
