And the Trails have levers that are designed to bend like butter upon slight impacts :rolleyes:

A friend bent his on his first ride. If you look at the lever design, you notice that there is cross sectional strength at the lever closest to the pivot. Fortunately the bend was fixable using a blowtorch, but that's still a pretty poor design for a lever.

really? i brought these also should get them by friday, but i was begining to think i should've gotten elixers instead... can you elaborate? what do you ride, how much you weigh?
I ride an 09 Reign and weigh 175. The brakes grab hard. The modulation is as good as the Elixers. I am running a 203 front rotor with a 180 rear.
