Comments about Formula R1 Disc Brake '11:

I love these brakes. I have had them on my Ellsworth Epiphany for over 3 years and aside from truing the rotors and changing pads they haven't needed a thing. These are Great brakes for XC to All mountain bikes.
They provide true 1 finger braking. I have Arthritis in my hands so not having to put a lot of pressure the levers is a savor for me. Lots of power and good modulation. Really lite. They don't need blead all the time like many others do.

The bad. All that power takes some getting used to. They require a lite touch which some might have a hard time coming to terms with. They don't have much clearance between the pads and the rotor. So keeping the rotors trued and centered is key to quiet performance. Not the best in the wet with the Organic pads.
I'd Give them 5 stars if there was better clearance between the pads and rotor.
