    New Pads, Or New Brakes?

    Hey, currently I have Hayes HFX-9 brakes on my DH bike. Yea, I know. they aren't too great. I've been toying with the idea of avid juicy 7's or maybe code's. But that is prooveing to be extremely expensive. About $280.00 - $350.00 My HFX-9's are feeling weak. They did get 4 days of whistler last season, and have seen lots of use since then. But nothing like 12 hrs a day of shuttleing

    Do you think I just need to replace my pads? or is it the whole brake set going out on me? I would prefer to see if I can get the hayes working again, so I could buy some new wheels.

    To fix my hayes, I'll need a longer brake line and pads for the front. anyone know where I can get these? I find tons of stuff for hfx- mag but none for hfx-9

    Try here for brake hose

    I would keep the hayes if you can get them to working order again; new brake pads fo soo! If they are starting to crap out I would get new ones, for safety. I have some Hayes HFX HD with some nice bonz levers on them and they are one of my favorite brakes.

    Although codes sound good to!
