I'm looking at a used 2014 Crux EVO Rival disc with the replacement mechanical brakes. I'm wondering if it's better to keep them than have the new hydraulics put back on? I'm also wondering if the mechanical brake cable routing is okay for this bike that had no brake cable routing before? Also this bike has the 50-34 compact chainrings instead of the 46-36. Does this mean hill climbing will be a little tougher?
