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!


XT's, as they are just saints in a different colour. And saints are the best brakes evar

The blue one isn't actually mine, but is collectively owned by the Victoria Uni Bike Club :)

Just took the drops off the Paddy Wagon and replaced the stem with a longer one. Much more comfy now, bit nippier in the traffic to. :) :cool:


Kona needs the stem flipped downwards and riser bars, so much more poser value :D

Hur hur, then run it fixie, remove the brakes and chop the risers to about 25 cm wide :)

While the old xt's are classic brakes, I think the new generation ones are better.
