I'm looking at some new brakes for 09. I've always used Avid J. 5's and Shim. XT's. But I really want to get something a bit nicer for my new build. Just XC riding, 6" rotors f/r. Was thinking about Magura Marta SL's or Avid Elixir CR. Then I saw the new Hayes Gram's.
Does any one have experience with the Hayes? Never owned any of there's, but lots of friends have them specd. on bikes and no real complaints (lower end models). In fact, none of there brakes make any sound compaired to mine.
Are the Gram's equal to the Magura and Avids in terms of quality, reliabilty, ease of set up?
Thanks for any info.
