I have read comments on MTB-focused forms that Shimano's MTB disc brakes are notably better than SRAM, but I haven't experienced it for myself. The previous owner of my newest MTB replaced the...

If I was having those issues with my brakes, I might be less than thrilled with them, too. Neither of my Shimano disc brake bikes have had those issues. Some of your issues sound like...

I understand the logic of your statement, but in real world application, I'm not sure how accurate it is. Just because disc brakes bite quicker, and take less lever force/travel to get to lockup...

My #1 road bike has Campy Record rim brakes. The lever feel and contact point are pretty different than the Ultegra hydro discs on my gravel bike. My SS MTB has Avid v-brakes. Compared to the XTR...

Great! Go ride and enjoy. I have dual-pivot Dua-Ace brakes on a couple of my older road bikes, and they definitely do a better job stopping the bike than the Campy Record brakes on my newer road...

Hmmm...I don't know if SRAM brakes have a different response than Shimano, because I've only used Shimano. The lever feel is definitely different between my rim brake bikes and disc brake bikes, and...

It says a lot that you can only see it that way.

Iím genuinely curious about why GR62ís experience is different than mine, and what factors might be contributing to that difference.

I didnít say heís wrong. I said my own experience has been different. Is it in the equipment, or in the user? I donít know, and Iím curious why that would be.

You're missing the point. No one is saying you should change your opinion. Commenting that a disc brake maintenance issue has "dissuaded" you from disc brakes is disingenuous. Your opinion was...

It seems to me the general consensus from the pro-disc folks is that the hassles of discs aren't actually as big as the anti-disk folks attempt to portray.

The ridiculous part is that 50PlusCycling's comment had zero effect on smd4's opinion about disc brakes. He made up his mind about them long ago, and has made it clear that his opinion is unwavering.

Hmmm...okay. Would that vary greatly with riding conditions? Kapusta saying he is bleeding his brakes 2,3,4 times per year is puzzling to me, but this is only based on my own experiences.
