Agree. Brakes shouldn't be solely influenced by travel or "bike category" or bullshit like that. They should be influenced by rider preference, intended use, and maybe rider weight ;-). If I intended to rip even an "XC" bike down long steep stuff at silly speeds, you'd better believe I'm using something more than a 2-piston with 140 rotors and organic pads, that might come on a bike like that, to haul my 100kgs to a stop. Partly because I'd melt those little brakes right quick, partly because I just like really f-ing strong brakes that I can control/modulate "right here" (flexes index finger)
