Since this is now the de facto "everything about brakes" thread I might as well stick it in here. Did my first bike park day on the MT7s, and for the first time since I started riding bike parks I experienced no fluctuations in performance throughout the day. Power was very good, modulation was decent, and pad life seems acceptable. Taking into account the fact that I've gotten fatter and more scared and I drag my brakes like a bitch, I'm pleased with the performance. No fade, no lever-to-the-bar death scares, nothing. Just chugged along outbraking all the available grip my tires could provide at will. The levers do not seem very crash resistant but I luckily haven't been able to test that yet.
