    While working on the XC bike I noticed the brake levers felt a little rough. This bike has the TRP Spyke 2 "piston" cable brakes. It took me a second to realize what it was. It was the notchy/gritty feel the calipers had when off the bike. So it does show up in the brake feel. Also there are reports that they don't hold their adjustment well offroad because there are no detents in the adjuster so they can back off. So I took BB7s off that bike to try the TRPs. I'd have to redo the hardlines and Jagwire cables to take them off. Since I don't rige it that much they'll probably stay. But BB7s they're not.
