    I'd definitely buy these again and whenever I can find a deal on them. Would recommend to all, as long as patience is given when setting up with new pads.

    Pros
    Very nice modulation
    Great stopping power

    Cons
    Tricky set up can produce ear-piercing squeal

    For the price you can't beat Juicy 7's. Even still these are my go to brakes for new builds. Avid just doesn't make them like they used to!

    Pros
    - Great stopping power and modulation
    - Pad contact adjustment
    - Split clamp design
    - Cheap

    Cons
    - Bleed process can be a pain
    - Weight
    - Not top loading pads

    I replace my hayses hydrolics to these and I've really been happy with the results. Yeah, there are times when the rotors will squell a lot but hey that just lets the deer know that I'm coming their way.

    Pros
    Bleeding these brakes with the Avid Bleed Kit makes this process so easy anyone can do it.

    Cons
    Replacing pads can be pain if the piston gets stuck out.

    I really do love these brakes. They work really well for any dispaline of mtbing.

    Pros
    Easy to adjust. Modulate very well when taken the time to set them up right. More then enough strength, without over kill.

    Cons
    Nothing so far.

    I run a 185 rotor front and rear on my trail bike and the stopping power with one finger is outstanding.

    Pros
    Adjustable reach and pad contact dial make personal setup a breeze.

    Cons
    Noisey at times

    Cons

    This may be the best brake (that won't break the bank) for the all-around rider. I replaced my worn out Hayes El Caminos with these. They aren't quite as light and don't have the adjustability of the El Caminos, but they are more reliable/trouble free. The tradeoffs have been worth it.

    Pros
    Good all-around brake system. Not quite the lightest, most adjustable, or most powerful, but possibly the best combination of all three.

    Cons
    Still can't eliminate all the squealing.

    Even with the occasional squealing, I wouldn`t hesitate to buy these brakes again.

    Pros
    Good modulation, good stopping power, easy alignment.

    Cons
    Hmmm, my brakes take bouts of squealing every now and then, and yes I`ve tried just about everything imaginable to get them to stop.

    Find different rotors.

    Pros
    Great stopping power.

    Cons
    Using the 07 rotor on the rear wheel makes these brake squeal something awfull.
