SLX or juicy 7
for those who have ridden both
would you buy slx brakeset or juicyseven and why?
I'm a trailrider with a AM side, i always use 185mm rotor on my trailbikes.
M665 vs Juicy 7
Ridden both - IMHO, when both brakes are working like they should (proper bleed etc.) Juicy 7 have noticable more power than the M665. Juicy 7, when working well can be a one finger brake through 20-30min and 3000 feet of hard descents vs dual finger for SLX.
Everything else (need for bleed, squeal, piston problems etc.) is on the Shimano side. Simply, in one year I only needed to change the pads and reset the pistons when doing it on the Shimano vs Juicy 7 who had turkey gobble problems (resolved by itself after a few rides), every 2 months it needed a bleed, had piston not returning problem and squealed in winter, needed to recenter (by hand) the caliper everytime when removing the wheel...
M666 (2012 SLX) vs Juicy 7
Didn't ride the 666's, but my friend told me the "power problem" from the older SLX's is gone. So, I would go M666 all the way.
