Downgrading to mechanical discs, what should I go with?

Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

I used Jagwire Pro Road cables, and housing. That includes their compressionless brake housing.

compassionless housing for mechanical / hybrid discs makes a huge difference.

Yeah, I went with the suggestions from the other users here. Thanks again for all the advice provided. I couldn't be happier.

Where is the best place to get the Juintechs? I'm in the US. I decided I'm going to build my current bike up with Ultegra mech until the hydro is available then donate them to a future rain bike build when the hydro shifters come out.

I just got mine off of ebay. None of the bike shops I work with have even heard of them, and don't have access to them through any of their distributors.

FYI, JuinTech now makes a "M1" model, meant for E-Bikes, and apparently a bit more power than R1.
Gonna get me some to see exactly what the difference is.

I ended up with the F1 for flat mount, and I've been super pleased with them.
