On TRP brakes - I'm glad they have a short free-stroke, I find that's beneficial when there's only a reach adjustment. My TRP Quadiems on my DH bike have massive levers made for gorillas and a huge amount of free-stroke, so you don't really have any choice but to run them way out there. They're great working brakes, but man, does it take some getting used to when my other 2 bikes run Shimanos with tiny levers placed exactly where I want them.  On the Ripmo AF - Seeing as you seem to be keeping that for a test ride, you should give the Cascade Link a try. I found it really transformed mine into the bike I was always looking for. It really helped with some of the beginning to mid-travel leverage curve issues you pointed out in your review.
