    I'd be less nervous about the Hayes.

    Also, I'd be confident I could find parts for the Hayes.

    Do you have disc brakes now?

    If so what are they? I'd take good mechanical discs over cheap hydros any day.

    If not, free won't help if your frame doesn't have disc brake tabs or you need new wheels.

    Ii hava some shimano non series mechanical. nothing to purchase. i guess you say they are both the same. if thats the case i will go with the helix just because of the weight, looks and that they are adjustable.
