All my mtb brakes are SRAM so I donít have a personal comparison there. No complaints about them though. I certainly wouldnít consider changing them out.

IME they are much the same. We currently have 1 bike on Shimano, 3 on SRAM and 1 on Magura. None of them have had any issues like this. If I had to pick one, I would say my Shimano road brakes have...

Hoses vibrating, adapter bracket slipping, loose headset and associated death vibration are bike build/design issues and certainly not inherent to SRAM HRD.

I've got one road bike on Shimano (105) and one on SRAM (Force) hydros. There isn't a lot of difference in lever feel and modulation. Both are very good and I rode the SRAM brakes on the L'Etape du...

I rode bikes like yours in the 80s and early 90s extensively, so I've got a reasonable idea how effective they are. My last rim-brake road bike was from the late 90s with Shimano Ultegra brakes of...

Just to be clear the reach adjuster is below the lever (2.5 mm hex) and the bite point adjuster is on the top. See video below:-

That's why they call it confirmation bias i.e. your opinion was fixed before you even read it. If someone said disc brakes were no hassle you would just ignore it.
