Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Bedding in new pads when they are installed is a critical step. The process transfers a small amount of pad material to the rotor and preps the pad surface for real-world braking. Don’t skip this step.

Pros
-Quieter
-Shorter break-in period
-More initial bite
-Prevent heat buildup
-Pushes heat back into the rotor

Cons
-Wear quicker
-Not as good in wet/muddy conditions

Pros
-fade at a higher temperature than resin pads
-better performance in wet conditions
-last longer

Cons
-louder
-longer break-in time
-not as much initial bite
-heat is conducted through the caliper, not the rotor

Familiarity: I've used it several times

Great box, lock is smooth, very easy to operate. Roomier than it looks in the pictures, easily fits four pairs of big skis, maybe more. Still low profile for gas mileage and garage clearance. Attachment system is super easy and tool free, very secure. Also it's compatible with any crossbars.

Pros:
-Easy, tool free installation
-Low profile but bigger than it looks
-Very smooth one-lock closure
-compatible with any crossbar
-More affordable than the bigger, fancier boxes
-Looks Great, especially on smaller cars


Cons:
-Not as roomy as the bigger boxes (plenty of room for my needs)
-Single sided opening (not a big deal to me)

make sure you get the right size stem, These bars only work with the 31.8mm stems and will not work with the 35mm stem. I have put these bars through some gnarly wrecks and they have come out surprisingly un touched. Also make sure to clamp your controls down to the correct torque.

if you want to save ten bucks and don't need the(t10,t20) I would look at YNS000Q composite 14 tool, I would definitely buy either of these tools again. The t10 comes in handy when bleeding sram brakes. It's on par with the park and crank brothers tool.

This tool has everything I want when i need to throw something in my seat bag . I would definitely buy this tool again. It's on par with the park and crank brothers tool. This one has two less tools (t10,t20) than it's bigger brother YNS000S alloy 16 tool.

Crazy light, but very stiff and still damp – my hands are far less fatigued on rough descents with these bars. I bought them with the intention of cutting them down 10-20 mm, but after riding them a few times, I don’t want to give up the control or comfort.
