The SRAM DB5 Disc Brake is the stealth fighter of the SRAM disc brake line. The SRAM DB5 is a no-nonsense workhorse for budget concious riders who want to go bigger, steeper, and harder. SRAM's DirectLink lever technology puts positive brake feel at your fingertips while the large-volume reservoir and a proven two-piston design provide plenty of control when you need it. With supreme power and excellent modulation, the SRAM DB5 Disc Brakes don't disappoint.
I had the SRAM DB 5s for from July of 2014 through April of 2016. I did not purchase my DB 5s from Jenson. I acquired them through SRAM and a SRAM authorized dealer/ bike shop as a warranty replacement for a defective set of Avid Elixer 1s. The set only I included the levers, calipers, and housing. It did not include the guide rotors. I remained with the Avid G2 rotors. from the start, they were a huge improvement. They were very powerful, using a 160mm platform. But, after a week or so, they became increasingly noisy. The warbler had come back so strong, you could feel it through the seat tube. However, they remainder exceptionally powerful. Sometime after June of 2015, I had the brakes re-bled through a local shop because they became spongy after the warmer weather. I purchased some after market pads, shortly after. They were a huge improvement for about 2 weeks the the warbler returned. The brakes were powerful and I learned to deal with the noise. Fast forward to April of 2016, they spongy and non-complaint. I checked the pads and they were still meaty. I didn't want to pay the $70 to get them both blessed; so, I ditched them an bought a set of Shimano SLX. I've probably spent a total of over $180 to install and maintain these brakes.
