On my new bike, i may look into disc brakes, but i think I'll let others test all this stuff out before i even bother saving up....
I can't wait for the next pint of good chocolate milk after a long ride.
imo, auto adjusting pistons, one finger braking, linear modulation, and rapid engagement make decent hydraulics a far better choice than any mechanical on the market.
i don't worry because it takes ~1 sec to push back the pistons -- something that is done when inserting a new pad in any case.You also don't have to worry about not squeezing the brake lever with mechanicals like you do with hydraulics when there's no disc in the caliper.
