    Avid elixer 5 Vs. Hayes stroker ryde

    Just bought a used 2011 bike w/ avid elixer 5's, my old bike is a 2009 with Hayes stroker ryde. I've been using the Hayes for 2+ years so I like them, and are used to them. Overall, which is a better brake, or is it just personal opinion, they are about equal?

    Thanks, and if you want to buy a well used 2009 XL Giant Trance X3, let me know.

    I think I'm not as good as I thought.

    The Elixir 5's are better brakes they don't have that binary brake feel that you get with the Stroker Ryde's.
