    Cool, with the weight reduction in your brakes, you break even on all that extra material above your stem......

    Lookin good!

    you know me Damon, I like to switch my forks around to different bikes...so I usually keep a little extra steerer tube just in case.

    nice handlebars!

    I don't care much for Danger Boy levers. I tried them when I had hopes and didn't like the shape of them.

    I have Hopes on my Hardtail and the levers are very good, but they don't fit to the Hayes Master Cylinder.

    I am not knocking carbon(well not too hard) I have loads of the stuff and have no problems with it.
    Very nice looking bike

    Now you "need" the carbon Goodridge lines to complete the package

    I do but I wanted to use the brakes with the stock lines first to see/compare.

    I've also been told that the Goodridge lines doesn't add any performance to the Juicy 7's as they already work great with the stock lines.

    They do work great stock, but the Goodridge ilnes are definitely an improvement.
    The engagment point becomes more distinct giving it a firmer feel.
    It's not a tremendous upgrade, but nice nonetheless.

    its a pun within a pun - I love it when people spell brakes, as "breaks" - well this time it actually is accurate.....

    carbon is just not worth it if you are a clumsy basher....too pretty for rough stuff....
