My current bike came with Hayes HFX-9s standard on it, but I've just replaced them with Avid Juicy 7s. They seem better and more consistent, but I admit there is one thing I do prefer on the Hayes - the lever construction.
The main difference is that the Avid lever is a straight curve - the Hayes lever on the other hand has a dip in each lever, appropriately positioned for your index finger. This makes one-finger braking much easier for someone like me with smaller hands.
Is there a particular reason Avid hasn't implemented something like this on the Juicy levers? Is this perhaps a problem for most riders?
It's certainly something I'd like to see appear on the '08 Juicys.
