Can you elaborate. People ask me about the feel of changing to stainless lines and sinterre pads all the time. We seel both. I would like to capture you impressions.

I have only the sintered pads , not SS lines. I will get to that in a while. I enjoy way less effort to haul the bike down to a stop.
Think of an old 50s or 60s car with drum brakes and no assist, and then getting into a modern car with disc brakes and assist.
It is an easy one finger task on the brake lever now. Hope this helps.

If you waited for low humidity you couldn't work on brakes half the year in Florida. Go right ahead.
