Re: brakes

I've ridden Hayes pretty much since the start. A change would be nice (plus I'm not so fussed with their current offerings)

Choices are (per end, 160mm and prices from Burkes):
Juicy 7's - $232
Juicy Ultimates - $398 (carbon goodness to go with my carbon bars/stem/seatpost/hubs )
Formula Oro K18/K24 - $305/360 (white to match the frame!)
Shimano XT - $198 + 45 (loved my old Deores and loved the XT's on goldfish's Stumpy)

Opinions please!

HOT!! Definately worth the wait :cool:

I'm a big fan of shimano brakes, you can't go wrong with them, maybe XTRs?? the formulas are a bit of a unknown and juicys... well.... heard enough to never bother.

Looking at those prices, What are you willing to pay? Remember you still have to double it.

Price isn't really a factor in it (dude, I'm running Olympics! :lol: )
Though both the price and the performance of the XT's does make them very attractive.
But then the carbon goodness of the Ultimates........... :rolleyes:

Nice machine! Interesting you went with Arseheavens. Whats up with vertical dropouts? What are you gonna do when your chain stretches a little?

Am I right in thinking that its a pretty slack headtube - looks like a mint wee bike.
