IME, mechanical disc brakes work really well. Hydros work really, really well.
I agree with you, Mark, that we humans tend to embrace new technology rather
quickly, often without considering consequences. However, mechanical disc
brakes on a bike are—at this point—tried and true. I’m a philistine and a
ham-fisted novice bike mechanic, and I’ve been able to figure out how to adjust
both hydraulic and mechanical disc brakes by watching a couple of YouTube
videos. The cr720s on my Sam are much more annoying to set up, actually. In
other words, I don’t think mechanical disc brakes on a bike are one of those
technologies of which we should be wary.
I have no skin in the game here. I likely wouldn’t buy a disc Hunq because I
already like the disc Surly Troll I own. I also don’t think Riv will make a
disc-braked bike, but it’s fun to dream.
