I am after a new brakeset for my 29er hardtail. The old avid juicy really are awful, I could live with the constant hum of braking but it’s now turned into a constant (like all the time screeching which even the dogs can’t stand). Anyway, I’ve tinkered about & my LBS say they are rubbish so they are off.
So what should I go for? I have elexir 5s on another bike & they have been fab, for c 100-150 gbp is there anything better?
Any ideas or deals out there? I love the bike but the current brakes are terrible.
I got shimano slx m675 and 180/160 ice tech rotors from EU for £150. Work a treat…just don’t bother with the finned pads. They come with organic pads so you may want to get a set of sintered in this crap weather.
I absolutely hate avids since having no end of problems with my 7’s!
