OK, I've searched and read the threads on the debates between the two, but the best thread I saw was last spring.

With a couple of months of summer under your tires, what is the consensus regarding the extra $800 for the Expert (AFR/Brain) vs the Elite (Propedal)?

Still think it's worth it?

Is the performance that much better than the Propedal?

What about X-0 vs XT? I'm partial to the XT rear because I like Rapid Rise (yes, I'm one of them...), but can always relearn "normal" shifting.

I have an Epic, so am familiar with how the Brain works, but not the Brain Fade... seems that it doesn't really offer much more than the Propedal, since it doesn't really lock out.

Thanks for all your inputs!
