  • brakes for pedfest

    contemplating on hydros...not really trying to drop 450 on the hopes though...looking to spend a few hundred or ??? and prefer a black caliper...or maybe just go with bb5s or bb7

    hook me up with some links

    You can get Avid Elixirs or Juicys on eBay for that price...I have both. They are both very nice, feel about the same to me.

    The Elixir 1 has more clearance, so the chain won't grind a groove in it lol
    Lookin for a new goat...mine is wore the hell out!

        Just get the bb7 brakes. You can lock them up just as good as hydros.

          Hydros are a huge leap better than mech.

          I used some nice mechs on the Polini with DoH cables. They stop 100% better than maddogs, but hydros are a step above.

          I like to ba able to barely put pressure to finesse the brakes.
