    That just begs the question... "What is Google?"

    If you're looking to purchase new brakes, I wouldn't look at the Juicy 3's. They came stock on a bike I had and I hated them from day one. In fact, they almost turned me away from disc brakes all together. They're heavy as hell and basically unadjustable. If you're looking to save money, I would go with the BB7's or even the BB5's. I upgraded to the Juicy 7's and take it from me, it's worth the extra coin...

    I think he already has a pair... probably came on a bike. I wouldn't recommend them either.

    I have them on my Trance 2 and have no complaint whatsoever - only problem I've had was some rubbing on the rear under power, but I think that's more of a rigidity issue in the rear triangle. Making sure the rear QR is really tight took care of that problem.

    I got to sample a set that came on my STP, well briefly before putting my shimano XT's on. They felt powerful even though they weren't broken in, levers were too burly for me though & XT's most definitely win out on modulation - but once again I'm comparing the familiar to something new, depends what you get used to.

    My set weighed in at 901g
    Here is the breakdown
    F 322g, R 340g (that's levers, hose & calipers, keep in mind the rear hose would be shorter than standard since it's on an STP which is a smaller framed bike)
    Rotors 105g each
    Bolts 30g the lot

    My Shimano XT's (765 - '07 model) weighed in at 925g, rotors bolts and all, rear hose being longer than that of the J3's.

    I reckon the Juicy 3's would beat the other hydro brake specced on bikes at a similar price poing (the Hayes Sole) by far and I wouldn't say they were too heavy at all, especially if you're on a budget and not much of a weight weenie. My set must have had a good bleed from factory as they felt really solid & powerful at the lever, or perhaps my Shimanos are in need of a better bleed!
