The Spyke brake has, in contrast to hydraulics, a very progressive lever to power ratio.
As pad wear progresses, adjustment of the integral 3 millimeter bi-leteral screws is necessary. The cable housing (barrel) adjuster hasn't the range. Though these brakes are quiet. Serious downhill use necessitates frequent adjustments. An excellent product.

Pros: Smooth lever feel. The anti-hydraulic

Cons: With hard use comes frequent adjustments.

Throw away your other cable discs

I've only just installed these on a new build, but they are the bomb when it comes to ease of installation. First of all, because both pads move, all you have to do is hook up the cable, clamp it down, and tighten the installation bolts. Bam - perfectly centered, aligned brake. There is also a tiny hole on each side into which you can insert a 3mm hex key to fine-tune the in-out position of the pads. No more struggling with the knurled plastic wheels on the Avid BB's.

Downside is that they seem pretty heavy. But I haven't actually weighed them vs. the Avids.

Pros: Ease of installation. Solid feel.

Cons: Heavy?

Dual Piston Pleasure

Prefer mechanical brakes due to setup simplicity and easy trail maintenance. Had been stopping with BB7's for several years, up to October 2014, when I bought a 160mm Spyke for the rear. After close to 4 months of use I've come to understand that the Spyke is the superior mechanical brake as the dual piston caliper feels very similar to hydro-brakes. Rarely do I get rotor rub, and there is no howl like my last mechanicals that were designed to push the rotor inboard. The Spyke grabs the rotor, like hydro-brakes are made to due.



Pros: Simple to set up. Simple to adjust. Easy to maintain. Shimano style pads. Works with many types of V-brake levers. Wide range modulation control.

Cons: MTB version only comes in black.

Excellent Mechanical Stoppers

I prefer mechanical discs on my rides. Simple, durable and easy to field repair. I've used BB7s for years and have been happy enough with them. These TRP Spykes are superior! Super easy setup, awesome stopping power and great modulation. Better than the BB7 in all these categories. My stoppers are also completely silent. No built in elk call when flying downhill. All of my BB7s have been quite noisy at times regardless of brake pad/ rotor type.
So far I've gotten 30 hours of mud fest riding with these brakes and am completely happy with them. Since both pads move in and out when braking the pads are wearing more evenly and I've had no pad rub when cranking it.
These are great stoppers!

Pros: Possibly the best mechanical disc stopper, even pad wear, silent, easy setup, easy pad changes, awesome stopping
