Everyone does. A search would reveal a split running approximately 3 to 1 against.
So you're looking for something in the $150 range plus wide brakes. Call it under $200.
In that case, there are many better choices.
Just above that, if you want to go Marker for warranty purposes without risking Markering out (see Aspen Extreme if you don't understand the reference), you could consider the Marker Griffon, a.k.a. the low-DIN version of the Jester.
Other strong options in the target price range are the Look PX12/Rossignol Axial2 12-DIN (they're the same model with different branding), the Tyrolia/Head Mojo 15, or the Tyrolia HD 14 Railflex.
