    Brake recommendations....

    205-210lb rider, mostly single track, nothing too agressive. Looking for simple to install hydraulic brake system that does not have ANY history of howling (I have some 2-3 year old Avid Juicy 7's that the rear howls like crazy on my Ventana)...affordalbe is preferred also. Thanks!

    LOL!

    Sorry, MCF. The only brakes I can recommend are the Elixir's...mine have been flawless, but I've heard others say theirs sometime squeal.

    Shimano Deore M535. End of. Got them installed on two bikes and they're flawless, mega easy to bleed and massively cheap. Although I'd recommend a 180mm disc for some more power.

    Any disc brake will squeal if they are not set up properly, contaminated, or misused.

    Give it more than a day... and bumping your own posts is not allowed.

    Elixirs properly set up (aligned) are a very good value and offer the additional power you are likely looking for.

    Howling brakes are cause be a misalignment of the rotor to the pad and can surprisingly be amplified by the design of the rear suspension (resonance).
