Hmm... Tinker's no doubt one of the top US MTB'ers out there. He could
have a trained monkey sitting on a rack to acutate a hand brake if he
wanted too. No doubt he could afford any brake he wants (I'm sure some
sort of sponsorship come into play also). But he chooses to use a cheeper
then V Onza brake.

Form before function with a Avid Tri Align??? I'm sure several ppl out
there would agree with me that the Tri's are GREAT stopping brakes... very
easy to adjust... and IMHO the best canti out there. I like the fact that
you can remove a pad and not have to readjust everything when you put
another back in. I would have to say just about any properly set up
canti... all other things beeing equal (i.e. rims... pads... blah blah)
can send you over the bars. I send myself over the bars enough with my
$15 Tektro -grafton look alikes. I still like to have neat looking stuff
though... what's wrong with that? If I can get cool looking and
functional... all the better for me. You talkin to a guy who still used
his cloth covered helmet till just a couple of months ago. Onza's stop
great. Don't know how hard they are to set up. Tri's stop great too.
Super easy to set up.
