    Ryde vs. Stroker

    Is there any difference between the Hayes Ryde and Stroker models...besides the on the fly adjustment of the Stroker???

    Okay thanks for clearing it up - I'm trying to decide whether the extra $300 is worth from going from a Norco Manik to the Rampage.

    What else is different? You could sell the rydes and buy a full set of strokers and have money left over. I've seen the strokers going for about $275 for a full set.

    CONCLUSIONS:

    TRAIL & RYDE

    Lever is adjustable without tools.
    There is +34% pad area - Less fatigue
    Diference in piston size - 20% more power
    More expensive

    If you have the €/$, then go for the Trail - Will report during this week, after some rides

    "HOPE" it can help you.

    PS- For $300 it isn`t worth it! Trail without discs cost 79€ each, so you can sell 2nd hand to a budy or something!

    I think the Stroker Trails are worth the money... Modulation is awesome with the radial cylinder. Much better than the Hayes Mags (which were one of the best in the market in the modulation department imo) and yet has more stopping power. They actually stop you when you want them to and they are fully controllable. No locking up or anything unless you mean them to...

    The Rydes also don't have the convenient banjo fittings for the hose coming from the calipers. Also, the Ryde uses a pin as well as the magnet to hold the pads in place whereas the Trails are pretty much tools free like the old Mags. These are differences though aren't as important as the differences listed above.
