With hindsight, the R785 levers + brakes combo were actually the strongest I've used. Hood shape was really odd and not my favorite, but it really delivered on gobs of braking power with only a single finger.

The move to flat mount on the front and smaller pads meant the braking took a big hit.

This is almost exactly my dream bike, including the paint. I'd have more aggressive geometry and gearing, but otherwise sweet setup.
