    Strokers vs Juicy &?

    Looking to set up some new stoppers. These are the 2 I'm willing to afford. Weigh in please.

    I've heard that the strokers are pretty sweet when they work, but theres a problem with an o-ring in the lever that will make the blade rebound pretty slow (you have to replace the o-ring to fix it).
    I lubed my disc brakes because they squeaked.
    Man was that fun to work out

    I have a set of Stoker Carbons; no different than the Trails other than the Carbon lever, which IMO is not worth the extra $$$.

    I like my Strokers a lot! I like that I can adjust the lever to nearly bottom out on the grip but not quite.
    I think the only downfall is the stock pads. They come w/ sintered pads which is great for heavy duty DH style riding because they like to run hot, othewise they're real grabby and like to howl.

    Don't have any experience w/ Juicys but the guys that I ride w/ that do have Juicy's have gotten on my brakes and were like "whoa! these are nice!!!".

    Also, I've never had the oring problem so I can't comment on the slow lever return issue.
