    Mine were stock on my bike... just pulled the bike out of storage after 7 years... brakes locked up. Bought a bleed kit for $20... an amazing amount of dark contaminated fluid and crud flushed out. Perfect one finger braking now.

    Pros
    Good power

    Cons
    Challenging to get a good bleed.

    I've got these brakes as stock on my bike a year ago and didn't realize how good they're until I've tried other brands. One finger operating means more fingers on the bar and more control on the rough terrain. Easy to control how much force you apply. And it will stop you on a dime when needed. Having fun year long and no problems - this is how I'll describe Avid Elixir R.

    Pros
    Everything. Will stop on a dime. One finger operating. Responsive and informative feeling. Toll-free adjustment.

    Cons
    None

    I have issues with some of my brakes because of my 240 lbs. frame. These handle my weight with ease. They are firm, consistant and inspire confidence. They are well made and function flawlessly.

    Pros
    Tool free adjustment, consistant flawless proformance, durable.

    Cons
    None found so far.
