It's just i'm looking to buy a new bike,
parts pick is part of price point.. so this is a budget bike choice.. $400 range..
Are you choosing the bike from the brakes they, product manager's, have chosen?
If you leave out all the Hydraulic Disc brakes .. Avid BB7,
[both pads dial in for adjustment, w/o tools]
if there is an Upgrade at point of purchase option..
Avid BB7 , part of the Sram group , is most popular..
Or leave the 5's on there.. Go with that.
ask if the shop stocks Quad Axis pads for spares, .. all the time..
if the answer is No , then consider that issue..
DOT fluid used in a lot of hydraulics , is hard on paint, wipe off immediately .
