I'm thinking of switching to either the 09 Louise BAT or the Louise Carbon from my current 08 Juicy 7s (185mm F&R), that I'm not particularly happy with, on my Slayer SXC.
The problems I've had with my J7s is they tend to fade and the pad wear is pretty shocking (sintered/metal pads) even after bedding in properly and they're pretty much on/off in modulation terms.
I'm weighing in around 80kg (~180lbs) XC/AM rider and ride mostly in damp to wet conditions with the occasional dry spell - no global warming here!
I've done a search and I've found a few things on here about these Maguras but not too much.
I don't have the opportunity to test these out before a potential purchase so what I'd like to know, from the people who own or have previously owned them (from 07 onwards), is how do they compare to the J7s or Shimano M775 XTs (which I have on my HT and find great)? What problems, if any, have you had with them? Are/were you running Ventidisc or SL rotors? If you've moved on to something else, to what and why?
If you have a few pics, it'd be nice to see them installed too.
