Avid Cable Disc Brakes



So I put the question to the readers!
1. What the Avid cable disc brakes like?
2. What are your choices?
3. On a tight budget which is the best brand for your money?
4. Why are my Grimeca hydraulic disc brakes worth nothing but a pinch of ****? (So much for buying a $3200AUS MTB when I can not use it because of the f*^ked brakes. The bike is only 8 mths old.

Anyway please post reply....
