The "aguments" just get better and better. Now Im projecting and spilling oil on my rotors.
Im NOT spreading FUD. I tell it like it is. Both my TRP eqipped bikes have very poor brake performance.
Apparently the disc brake police doet not allow that position. You make up endless "arguments" and attacks.
Now I only need to "do my home work", get special non compression cables that didnt come oem with the bikes, get really expensive 3rd party pads, clean the discs (again) with special bike degreaser, set it up right, break in the pads (the right way - what ever that is), not spill oil on the discs and stop projecting to make em work .. OK, Im sure its great then ... and if if it still doesnt work right, im sure its still user fail, cos discs are great!
When I got my TRP Spyre SLCs, yes I went with compressionless link cable housing, and yes I went with third-party pads and rotors. I wanted to give myself the best braking with those calipers. Cost was not a priority. Only gripe with the Spyres was the hex-based pad advancement and the fact that it didn’t have detents like, say Avid BB7s so there was potential for some precession in the bolt.
And I bet most rim-brake users here are very picky about which pads they use on which rims. At least with disc you don’t really have to worry about whether SwissStop Disc RS pads work adequately on other rotors. So what happens if you own wheels from ENVE, Campy, etc. and they each prefer different pads? Ideally you swap them in/out, right?
Bedding in disc rotors is braindead easy, don’t act so confused. You pedal up to, say 15-20mph and apply a steady force on the lever, letting go before you come to a stop. Do this a few times until the braking effectiveness no longer improves. What’s so hard about that?
If you don’t have a light spray/aerosol degreaser, then go buy some from an automotive store, bike shop or whatever. It’s handy for more than cleaning rotors! Also brake surface cleaning isn’t disc exclusive. People use Mavic rim stones or 3M pads with degreaser on their alloy braketracks to clean the muck off.
And in the end you’re still talking about a half-measure cable actuated disc brake system.
