    Avid Code Brakes on 2013 SJ fsr evo?

    Any reason I cant put avid code brakes on my stumpjumper FSR EVO?

    I am a clyde, and a long downhill "25 minutes" seemed to cook the exliar 5.

    No, no reason why not.

    What about some Shimano Saints?

    Since the front brake is for controlling speed, you could use a Code up front with a 203 rotor. There is no need for Code power on the rear of that bike.

    Agree with consistancy. Try out diff front tires for that extra grip too.

    I do have 200mm up front now,(avid 5) and the bike does stop, just seems I am taxing the system, I have turned my rotors black, maybe thats the usual?
