Epyon said:You've got that backwards. The RPMs would obviously be the same, but the surface feet per minute is much higher at the rim.Tommy L said:One must keep in mind that Rim Brakes are grabbing something that is turning slower than grabbing closer to the hub, which is turning much faster.
Just to add my 2¢ to the disc vs. rim brake debate, I personally would always take discs. If you're an all-weather rider, the wet performance is far superior. If you're a trail rider, the better modulation with discs helps a lot.
TRP Spyre/Spyke mechanical calipers are fantastic. I ditched all my hydraulics for them.
ooooops correct you are but the torque required to stop closer to the hub would be higher. Right?
I have the Juicy 3 Hydraulic. seems real nice, a little finger goes a long way.
I'll check the Mechanical Calipers that you mentioned! Thank you!
