Mechanical/Cable brakes are better.

Mechanical/Cable brakes are better. - Mechanical brakes are so much easier to maintain. Hydraulic brakes are so, so, so incredibly much more difficult to maintain that it is absurd. The tools that you have to keep are excessive and expensive and the difficulty factor for bleeding the brakes is through the roof. The stopping power of mechanical brakes is just fine. You are not stopping a locomotive here. Do your really need something that is easier to press than a mechanical brake? In my 50+ years riding bikes I have never once thought that I would get tired while pressing my brakes. Absurd. Yuk. Go Mechanical Brakes!
