    Most adjustable hydro?

    The thing I like best about my BB7s is their near-limitless adjustability (lever reach, pad engagement point, etc). If I wanted a hydro with that type of adjustability should I be looking at Juicys (or maybe Strokers)?

    J3 and 5 have lever adjustment. J7 and ultimates have both pad engagement point adjustment.

    Strokers have contact point adjustment. Although I havn't used these just played around with them in the shop.

    All good hydros should be easy to set up to how you prefer.
    Not that all teenagers are evil mind, just most of them.

    J3 and J4 have lever REACH adjustment (as do most/all hydros). I just thought I'd clarify.

    The 2008 XTs are very adjustable. Magura Louise Bat. Avid J7/Ultimate/Code. Strokers. Formula with the FCS. Etc.

    I am looking for some new hydros. Sometimes less is more.
    And sometimes features are nice.
    Therefore I am debating between an Avid Code (feature packed and expensive, so lala reliability?) and an 2008 XT (less expensive, nice, marvellous quality control) or an 2007 Saint/XT etc. (bombproof and reliable, cheap and Straitline levers are available)

    I guess IŽll wait another month and see how the 2008XTs hold up

    Greetings Znarf
