Alright my specialized status 1 came with pos elixir 1 brakes. 5 rides new pads once and now they just don't work. My 2011 candondale moto4 has magura julie brakes, weeeeell I'm a little cash poor right now and there's a race next weekend. Should I bite the bullet and by the shimano zee brakes on jenson or chain reaction, can't remember or swap out and put the maguras on. Candondale hadn't been used as much this year as last and I find myself riding my dh bike like 95% more than my xc bike
