Got a Lemond Poprad 03 which I picked up new in January. Put around 500 miles on it last month and noticed that the brakes were causing issues.
Anyway, the bike has Avid Shorty 4 brakes. I can pick up a cheapo pair of Avid Shorty Ti brakes, but wanted to know if they were any different than the 4s. I'm not terribly interested in weight savings, nor the "strength" of the brake assembly (ie: I don't care that the metal brake won't crack, etc) , rather I'm curious about stopping power, smoothness, basically the things that help the brake slow down the bike.
Is it worth it to upgrade?
Thanks - MM
