Disc Versus Hydraulic brakes.

Just wondering what would give more bang for your buck.

longer cranks

I assume you meant hydraulic rim brakes?

Unless he meant something like these.

Yeah rim brakes.

Disk for sure but they are pricy

Knoxxuni that is exactly my predicament. I know disc has more efficiency and stoping power but they are more expensive. I was wondering if it would be better to buy the more expensive beter disc brakes or the less expensive hydraulic rim brakes?

Rim brakes work fine, they are plenty powerful, their only weaknesses are wet weather performance and the fiddle factor, both of which are not big enough issues to warrant switching from rim brakes to disc brakes.

So, what do you want out of a brake?

What uni are you going to use with a brake?

What length cranks are you running?

Have you ever rode a uni with a brake?
