    Hayes Stroker Ace or Hayes Prine Pro

    I'm gonna be building up a sweet '11 Giant Trance X4. I'm having a hard time deciding between Hayes Stroker Ace or Hayes Prime Pro. I'm able to purchase the strokers F+R for $190 and Prime Pro F+R for $200. I like the look of the Stroker Ace and the 4 piston calipers give it that mean look. Reviews say they're great also. Same with the Prime Pro, a lot of good reviews from the media.

    How much do you weigh? What kind of trails do you ride?

    For an X4 I'd go with the Primes, the Stroker Ace's would likely be overkill unless you're especially heavy or the trails you ride are especially long and steep.

    Ahh I forgot to include those info. I'm in Florida, where our trails are technical xc. However do plan to go on some trips up north to NC, TN to trails like Raccoon Mountain, Tsali etc. I weigh about 210 lbs.

    I'd stick with the Primes, and put a 7" rotor up front.
