    Hayes MX1 vs. MX2?

    Both are now available for ~$45. What is the difference between the two (besides 13g)? The Hayes site lists certain different features, but no real comparison.

    MX1 (http://www.hayesdiscbrake.com/mx1xc.cfm)

    Rotor: 6-inch, stainless steel
    System Weight: 327 gram
    Mounts Available: Hayes 74mm post mount, 20mm through axle mount, and International Standard front and rear mount
    Entry Level Mechanical
    Fluidless system uses standard lever, cable and housing
    Adjuster barrel for "tool free" easy pad adjustment
    Semi metallic brake pads
    Complete ball bearing system--"Rollin' Internals" feature all rolling elements
    Mounting bracket system for easy setup and adjustment
    HML Lever set available

    MX2 (http://www.hayesdiscbrake.com/mx2xc.cfm)

    Rotor: 6-inch, stainless steel
    System Weight: 314 gram
    Mounts Available: Hayes 74mm post mount, 20mm through axle mount, and International Standard front and rear mount
    Entry Level Compact Mechanical
    Progressive friction material for modulation
    Compatible with all linear pull levers
    5mm allen key inner pad adjustment
    Compatible with all Hayes brackets
    Mono-block caliper design
    HML Lever set available

    I suspect I am missing something really obvious here.

    the mx2 caliper is slightly smaller in size and if you look at the list of features, the mx1 has ball bearings.

    MX2s also use different pads

    I was looking into that as well, the HMX-1 / MX-1s use the standard hayes pads. The MX-2s use a different sized pad.
