    Probably hydraulics.
    And in your second option on the pool should have been mechanical disc brakes.

    And I use mechanical.

    I'd say that for anything over £300 you'll be getting hydraulics on nowadays - discs are the way to go as they are powerful and you don't use your rims for a braking surface

    Two of my bikes have hydraulic discs
    The 3rd bike uses (Magura HS33) hydraulic rim brakes which have tons of feel and can equal or better most midrange discs in stopping power
