Here's the deal, my juicy 5's have had warble from day one, nothing I do solves it. Front piston is stuck, and I'm just getting tired of loud brakes...
They're under warranty, but the downtime would kill me as I'm on xmas holiday from college and want to get tons of riding in [I'm sure you all can relate ]. So keep in mind I can sell my bnib juicy5's for what, 100max, but probably 75?
I'm planning on ordering new brakes, but I really don't want to break the bank. I loved the juicys stopping power with stock pads and 8in front rotors and 6in rears. It was enough to do the job well, but the noise issues and failures were killing my rides!
I'm currently looking at the xt's with the servowave? technology. Having the pads sit farther from the rotor sounds extremely enticing since there'd be less chace or rotor/pad rub. Elixir Cr's are on my list as well, but I've read stuff on the warble starting to present itself there as well, so they're at the bottom. Lastly we have the hayes stroker and the formula k24's. Both great brakes, but both kinda pricey.
So far I've found the XT the be the least expensive of the bunch, but surely point me in the direction of the better deals. I'd really like to keep the purchase to under 250, but I don't think that's going to happen. How do these stack up to juicy5's? Would a formula brake, although I've heard better modulation, be something to look at in my price range?
I'm pretty much sold on the XT's I guess, thoughts?
