    You can never have too much brake - UGI Content

    Still need some tweaking...but you get the idea.

    Tell me about it! I put those breaks on my Bruja build last year and was sooo blown away. I'm going to throw them on my Cuervo this summer and put the 6pots on the Bruja. The big bike can always use more break, but I feel the Bruja can use a bit more finesse inteh brake department.

    Did you go with the vented rotors?

    Mine are vented....and boy are those a HEAVY set of brakes!

    Love the feel of the levers too.

    Just the standard solid ones...I thought the vented might be just a little overkill for this bike. I made the mistake of riding the Moto's on Hambone's RFX for awhile. After that, I knew I had to have them. Incredible power and modulation.

    Could have last night! We had over 2.5 inches at our house. That is a lot by GA standards.

    Have to love the Hope simplicity...you get to bleed the brakes just like on a car. Simple and quick process. The rear line is still stupid long because I am waiting on a black line to come in and I didn't want to waste time cutting for no reason. So here are the better pics than the ones above.

    That would feel really weird...but they do come in a vented rotor version as you can see by El Salts pic. That is just insane...I heard those rotors never fade no matter what you are doing.
