I have Hayes IH2 mechanical disc brakes which are the same as the Hayes MX2 and I want to change out to Hydraulic disc brakes. I figured I would just buy a whole new setup if I can get a good price, but I wanted to get some feedback before I move forward. My riding style is mostly downhill in the mountains and some cross country. I ride fast and do some small 3’-4’ hits and the trails that I frequent are turn/drop off combined over and over. Here are a few questions that I have:
1. The brakes on my new bike have no more than 10 soft street ridden hours on them. Should I wait till they are shot and get the new ones, or should I try and sell them on craigslist or ebay and use whatever I get towards the hydraulic ones?
2. What is an honest price for the brake setup? Levers, cables, calipers, pads, the whole setup. I would consider them like new and in great shape. No rubbing, no scratches, they even look new.
3. Are there any parts on the current setup that can be recycled? Maybe the discs that are attached to the rims?
4. Does anyone know where the best place online or in Tucson, AZ is to buy a full brake setup?
Thank you for you feedback.
