    New Juicy 7s or K-18s

    I am building going to be ordering a RIP9 and want to replace my BB7s. I can't decide b/w the new Juicy 7s and the Formula K18s. I can get the brake set and ALL hardware for about the same price. The weights are now almost identical. I haven't ridden either set, but am curious to which has better feel, in your opinion. Living in Fl., stopping power and fade are not as important. Reliability is also a consideration. Lastly, does anyone have a recommendation for brake line length? It will be a Lg. RIP with a WB 110. Thanks.

    K18s, no question. Formulas have great modulation and stopping power. I have some MEGAs on my RFX and will be ordering a set of K18s for my Ventana to replace some XT's. I have ridden Juicy 7's (on a friends bike, not the new ones) and they just don't compare in terms of feel and stopping power.
