    El Camino VS Juicy Fives

    Howdy,
    I am going to order a Reign X1 Japanese Model which comes stock with Juicy fives. I already have a set of El Camino`s I used on my DH bike for only 3 months. The El Camino`s sucked for DH but I am only planning to use the ReignX1 for daily use and abuse and light FR. So I was thinking of slapping the used El Camino`s on the Reign and selling off the new Juicy 5's. I am only 165 lbs. so stopping power isnt much of an issue.

    Do the Juicy 5's blow away the El Camino's in terms of performance and matainence ?

    and

    Which set of brakes do you think would get a higher price?

    Thanx

    El Caminos are terrible, as I'm sure you've already found out.

    Take the time to set up and break in the Juicy 5s correctly. They are MUCH better.

    i really shouldn't be posting because i haven't tried the Hayes. However, i am trying to increase my post totals.

    i will take this opportunity to tell you that i do own Hope mini & M4 and juicy 5's. i enjoy the juicy five's very much.
