    How XC are Juicy Ultimates......

    Noticed 203 size rotors available for the front for Juicy Ultimates........does this mean they are not restricted to XC use only???? I'm running a set on my XC hardtail, and my friend was thinking of buying them off me to put on his AM rig.........(6 inch travel bike)....Should I not sell them to him and tell him to look at something else????

    Go ahead and sell em to him. They make fine AM brakes. It just depends on how agressively he rides. There are VERY few disc brakes that are not or do not have a 203mm rotor option. BB5s, BB7s, Juicy 3, 5, and 7s, Ultimates, Carbons, you name it. The only thing stronger are 4 pot brakes like the Codes and such. If he rides really hard and agressively then that's the way he should go. But for the most part he should be fine with the Ultimates.

    they shoudl be fine. i would be shocked if virtually any brake couldnt be used for AM use or more GNAR, so long as the proper sized rotor is used. All hyrdo disc brakes are good nowadays some with more power, but all could work for AM i would bet

    Juicy Ultimates are fine for AM type riding.

    I would be a little hesitant to put them on my DJ/Street bike because of the carbon levers. I ditch my bike pretty often... and banging up a carbon lever is a lot more expensive than an aluminum one.
