    Hayes vs. Magura

    I have read all the reviews at MTBR and find them to be equal for the Louise FreeRides and Hayes Mags. Whats your opinion on these two systems. I can get the Magura FR's with 210mm rotors or, the Hayes with 203 ( i think ) for nearly the same price. The Magura's a little more expenssive thouhg.

    I just got the new Louise XC and they are sweet. Same as the FR only with 6" rotors. One piece calipers, strong levers, wavy rotors, incredible modulation, 5 year leak-proof warranty and outstand customer support. I've seen extremely good pricing on these on eBay.

    Own the FR and have ridden Hayes.

    Both are good but I prefer the Maggies.

    Much better modulation & superb customer service. The Hayes feel grabby to me but have more solid levers.
