The old FD wasn't 58g. It was actually around 70-71g. So it's only gaining 3-4g.

Doesn't the current fd run from limit screw to limit screw ? Why would there be any difference ?


if the shifter pulls 7mm of cable MAX, and the front derailleur requires 6mm of cable pull to move the cage from one gear to another, the limit screws do their job.
if the front derailleur requires 8mm or cable pull to move the cage, then the high limit screw never comes into play. the cage will not move far enough.

True , thisisatest . I dont think that the new fd even requires as much "pull" as the old one due to the "yaw" feature . Anyway time will tell , as soon as somebody can get one to test it .

Those new hydraulic levers look super comfy, and the brakes are nice and clean-looking too.

I'd run them for those reasons alone...! :lol:

Who honestly needs that big of a handhold?

Do the lever blades look kinda small to anyone else?

Is there actually any benefit to having hydraulic rim brakes?

Having people convert to hydraulic while wheel/hub manufacturers create disc compatible road hubs that they can successfully market and build into stock wheelsets.

Time trial Frames and the current trend in aero road frames.

Sorry, I'll rephrase. Any performance benefits to hydraulic rim brakes? In other words, any reason for me to drop a lot of money on something that won't make me any better/faster/safer.

I can see them having more stopping power and precise modulation in adverse conditions and on carbon wheels.

Do you really need more stopping power? You can argue about modulation, but it comes down to pads so much that I am not sure how different it will be.

Hydrolic rim brakes will give more stopping power when used in TT or aero road frames. Those frames usually make cables go in strange angles and create high friction inside the cables. This gives traditional cable pulled brakes less stopping power. A hydro powered brake should solve this.
