    Avid elixir brakes from ebay

    Hey i have a question about those brakes. Why are they so cheap, because they are knock offs? or is it really a good deal?

    Here is the link:
    New Improved 2012 Avid Elixir 1 Hydraulic Disc Brake Set HS1 Rotors 160mm White | eBay

    thanks in advance.

    Avid Elixir 1 is their (avid's) entry level brakes. I would say it is a decent deal.

    Watch out for those Chinese sellers. They sometimes get their stock from chinese copy-cats that didn't score a contract with the brand, rather than the true quality Taiwanese manufacturers that pay attention to detail. Not coming with retail packaging is a pretty good giveaway that they're rip offs. They'll work acceptably if you only expect to get as much quality as you paid for, but their cheapness will show in one way or another.
    We're all on the same ship, and it's sinking.
