I guess if AgrAde is right on the feel then why not... Best in class is generally most spendy in class.


That's in a different world to Trickstuff pricing, about 80% of Guide Ultimate pricing and less than even Code RSC.

Pricey compared to your usual cheap shimanos bought online, but not outliers at all in the high end. Especially considering the shock I got jumping on the bike with the codes. It almost felt like going back to cable actuated disks, or like my fingers were super cold and I'd lost my dexterity :lol:

Hah possibly. I feel obligated to give him a hoon on them but I'm pretty sure I'll never see them again if I do :paranoid:

Reckon they’d be worth it for the calliper alignment screws alone.

Ok, maybe not - but that is an amazing feature in my view. Can’t think of a more frustrating task than aligning callipers to rotors (when you’re a perfectionist).

My wobbly rotors ruins any sort of alignment efforts.

The manual is hilariously specific and detailed for the process that you use to install and align the calliper. It's like Dougal wrote it himself. It also works first time, every time and doesn't feel like you're adding unnecessary twiddling like I suspected. Pretty sweet.

It's akin to a miracle when always removing and reinstalling forks like I have to.

Same fork, push it over and do up the bolts. Perfect alignment in seconds.
