    So everyone who has had problems with avids simply doesn't know what they're doing? Gimme a break....

    OP - spend a few more dollars and avoid a headache

    Every brand has their issues and Avid's seem to be more on the finicky side, but I have a lot of experience with every brand and have yet to find a set of Avids that can't be made to work right.

    And if we're talking about $50 compared to $150 for a Deore set, that's significant savings. I recently did go that route on a set of Avid Elixir 3's for a bike I'm trying to sell. Zero issues with the brakes except for that vague lever feel, which is the norm for Avids. It comes down to how tight the budget is.

    The other night riding home from work and it had just rained hit some huge puddles and I experienced no brake fade what so ever! And I mean huge puddles that came all the up to the brake rotor
