    Juicy 5 vs 7?

    My bike came with Juicy 5's, is there any reason to upgrade to the 7's?

    What would be the pros of doing this?

    Same brake. The J7 just has the knob on the lever to adjust the throw (distance the lever travels before engaging).

    Thanks. That's actually a feature I'd like. I may just upgrade. Thanks!

    Just the MC body should be able to be purchased by an LBS through one of their distributors.

    They both use the same caliper, only the lever assy. is different, however they both use the same levers...did that make sense?

    EDIT: I see XSL_WiLL beat me to the punch with a much better answer
