I'm pretty sure all our opinions are gonna be based on where we live.
In Lincoln, NE usa (flat, good-great biking infrastructure) any bicycle brake gave good service and long life.
But now I live along the coast (not flat, poor-good biking infrastructure) where after quickly destroying disk, band and rim brakes my favorite combination brake is a linear-pull rim brake with a regen motor.
I would hazard a guess that any mechanical brake would work well with a regen or otherwise motor brake.
