    New avids...

    http://www.sram.com/en/avid/discbrakes/juicy5.php
    The new Avid brakes along with Sram and rockshox are now up!
    Juicy 5?! Is it just a more affordable version of the 7?

    marketing

    Interesting marketing by Avid/SRAM. Instead of offering newly designed brakes, they're just giving you stripped down versions of the exisitng Juicy 7 and mechanical. Other than cost advantage, it doesn't really help the enthusiast or expert riders. I just bought the Juicy 7's and really glad they didn't introduce a new upgraded version of it (both are great brakes by the way).

    On a side note, interesting how in the past 3-4 years to see Rockshox loose market place to the other big three makers. Goes to show you how competative things are in cycling components & accessories.
