    SRAM 9.0 vs AVID SD7

    I'm changing my LX brakes to SRAM 9.0 or AVID SD7's. They both got the yellow star in the review section. Any recomendations?
    Thanks

    Save your money. You won't notice a difference between what you have and either of those. Might try some new brake pads (maybe new cartridge pads) if you want to try something different. Kool Stop makes brake pads for almost everyone start there.

    I have both and they are comparable. The SD7's feel a bit more linear at the lever (at least with Avid levers) and are lighter while the SRAMs are cheaper and have a lighter overall lever feel. However, the rear SRAM seemed to be coming out of adjustment more frequent than the Avid (rear brake only).
