I’m going to try something new today. I recently found out that a product manager at SRAM reads our blog. I’ve been bugging this person for some time about SRAM/Avid producing a high end mechanical disc brake. Maybe it’s just me, but mechanical disc brakes are so simple and effective. No fluid. Easily servicable. I love them. However, all the mechanical disc brakes on the market keep getting cheaper and heavier. Where is the high end version? Who wants one? I know I do.
So….share your thoughts. Who thinks SRAM should do a high end mechanical disc brake? Who would buy them?
FYI: The line starts behind me. I’d take at least 5 f&r sets for my personal bikes.
One note, please don’t comment if you’d never buy a disc brake or would never consider owning a mechanical disc brake.
Ride & Smile!

Growing up as a Minnesota farm boy, I developed an appreciation and love for land and open space. This appreciation has fostered two passions, cycling and photography. Both of these passions provide freedom, encourage me to explore and foster creativity. More importantly though, my journey with a bike and a camera reminds me that the world is big and I am small.
