    Hayes or Avid for an '01 Fuel 90? (x-post)

    So, I'm going to be building up another bike (a 5" travel "trail bike"), and I intend to put disc brakes on it. I've got Hayes hydros on my Fuel now, but I'm thinking I'll get Avid Mechs for the next set of discs. Here's my question: should I put the Avids on the new bike or on the Fuel and use the Hayes for the new bike? Which would have better performance for a "trail" bike, I guess is what I'm getting at?

    Does anyone use the Avid Mechs on their Fuel now? What do you think of them? Any issues of vibrations or noise from them as with the Hayes from the '01 Fuels?

    I'm running the Avids on my fuel with no problems at all. I couldn't be happier with them. One thing that might influence your decision is that the fuel has no hydro cable guides. A 5 inch bike might be more likely to have them. If that is the case, put the hayes on the trail bike and the avids on the fuel. It really doesn't matter though. You'll be perfectly happy either way you go. If you get into serious trouble, just go with which brakeset looks better on which bike!
