It's all personal preference, I can't stand brake levers that move side to side. I actually prefer the latest SRAM to Campy and will likely make the switch with the next round of bikes. I have two single speeds (29er and road commie) at the moment, so shifting isn't always my concern anyway.
In a typical year, I try to get out to New Mexico and Colorado for both mountain biking and good road rides, but I've been a total slacker this year and haven't even hit 1k miles yet, which I normally do by March.
