    Brakes

    I am building a new mountain bike for aggressive trail riding and need some advice deciding on brakes. Im trying to keep the cost low so its between:
    Magura Louise BAT
    or Formula Oro K18
    I know they will both be great brakes but Id like some feedback about things such as noise, power, modulation, and how the levers feel.

    You want budget, but I don't see a poll option for Hayes HFX 9s from Pricepoint for only $50 per wheel
    Its all Shits and Giggles until somebody Giggles and Shits
