This is a follow up to this post: How to increase brake responsiveness on Microshift style STI brifters paired with mechanical disc brake
I have mountain bike mechanical disc brakes on a steel gravel bike. I have a set of brifters installed. I'm guessing the fact that I have mountain mechanical disc brakes are the reason why I have a mushy feeling on my brake levers no matter how optimally setup it is.
I'm considering getting road mechanical disk brakes. There a many options available. Initially, I only looked into mountain mechanical disc brakes because I figured they are more sturdy and appropriate for a gravel bike (especially steel). Is this accurate? Or is a pair of road mechanical disc brakes just as safe and performant? I have a poseidon x bike that comes with the Microshift Advent X brifters paired with the Tektro MD-C510. I figured I can use the same model mechanical disc brakes on the steel gravel bike I'm putting together.
