    Hayes Mags vs. Avid Juicy 5s

    What brakes stops with the least amount of brake lever force (given the same sized rotors)? Is the Avid lever more ergonomic?

    Reason I ask is that some of the fingers of my left hand are hurting because of the stock Hayes levers. I'm running the sintered metal pads.

    They both stop pretty well. A lot of it will come down to how it's set up. I believe that the stock Avid levers are more ergonomic. The stock Hayes levers have never worked real well for me. Aftermarket levers significantly improve the feel.
