    I suppose I just like the feel of them better. Honestly, I really like the BB7s a lot. I wanted to try out the TRP Spyke brakes because they have dual sided actuation. On the TRP website it says they're a snap to set up and that's pretty accurate. More so than the BB7s. I really like them so far. I've had both Shimano XTR and Formula R1s on previous bikes (Ted Wojcik and Igleheart) and have no problem with installing and setting up hydraulic systems, but again, it's a personal preference and tend to lean towards mechanical discs. Could be my riding style too or the fact that I was using to rim brakes for more than 20 years on my mountain bikes.

    I've been using the Trail Kings for a couple of years and they're great. The ProTection casing is nice too. Also had them in the 26" format on my Ted Wojick. Not a fast tire, but very cushy and perfect for rigid setups. They're true to size also and that's a plus. I consider it a large 2.4, say compared Continental Mountain King 2.4.

    Fugo's bike by Nao Tomii, on Flickr

    Look at this little informal photo narrative of Nao Tomii's bike build for his son Fugo. This link takes you to the first of eight photos. Just click right to see them all.

    Super cool.

    His daughter Aila is now riding Fugo's old bike.

    The red bike has switched owners and colors. Check here in this nice interview with Nao on Radavist to see its new iteration:

    Awesome interview. Looking forward to meeting Nao and seeing his work in person at NAHBS 2020 in Dallas.
