I was thinking how SRAM impacted in such a negative way the reliability of bike components in general. If Shimano can do away with such a high rate of brake failures it certainly has a lot to do with the gobs of unreliable Avid/SRAM brakes we all came to love or hate. Now all the Shimano fanboys out there would just happily say "yeah, I just warrantied them". What would you guys do if the brakes in your brand new Dodge ram did the same? I'm more than sure a class action would emerge.
