Yeah, I can see myself on the grumpy train there.  I'd be getting Saints on my FS bike so I can hand down the 2-pot XT's to my hardtail, both of which are rocking 203mm rotors.   The Magura are scarce out here, so I'm still too worried about being without service parts, while anything in the Shimanoverse I'm covered to some extent.  I'd definitely be in that train of 'great, now these have to go on everything' - this bike has already seen that see-saw effect (got a Topaz shock, so the front needed help, got the Luftkappe and adjusted tune, then had to reshim the Topaz...  Also, lack of test ride fleet bikes is the other big part of that, since that's my venue for trying out so many things. It's legitimately harder for smaller brands to get that foothold than anybody with access to review products can intuit, just from that thing alone - your glowing reviews can be accurate, and I'll still choose the inferior performing product for supportability and experience issues.
