    Any good disc brake deals?

    You can always get BB7s at a good price but any good hydro deals? Formula K18s especially, Juicy 7s, whatever...

    The cheapest I can think of are either A set of OEM Juicy 3's (Not very common.) OR SOME Shimano Deore/Deore LX Hydro's. I prefer to stay away from Hayes but This is MOUNTAIN BIKE REVIEW.COM so you can probably find some reviews on the above mentioned hydro sets. Neither should cost you more than $250 for a full set. Either that or get a job at a bike shop and EP a set of Juicy Ultimates & quit. Tee-hee.

    I got your deal!!!

    I hate to give this one up, as I should just buy them for a build this summer but here goes:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...0366&rd=1&rd=1

    A complete set of new Juicy 5's for $144 shipped!!! That's cheaper than some sets of BB7's

    If they're an option, I'd grab them. They will not last!

    That is a great deal, Clyde... thank you!

    I am not sure about the J5's though. I think it is BB7s or the Formulas since that is what I am running on my other bikes... somebody should snap that up though. Maybe you?

    I wish I could

    Just don't have the cash at this time. Unexpected car expenses

    Somebody got a great deal.

    Good luck in finding a good price on something more suitable.

    Good job! I'd say....

    I would defintely recommend the shimano LX's or Juicy 5's instead of the Hayes. My .02

    Whatever you get; welcome to power, modulation, reliability, and low maintenance.

    Welcome to HYDROS!!! ENJOY!

    Okay, thanks for all the input. I really wanted the Formula Oros. I found the K18s at Universal for $115:
    http://www.universalcycles.com/shopp...5137&category=

    Then you need the rotors/adaptors, which are $32/$39 for the 160mm/180mm IS versions
    http://www.universalcycles.com/shopp...5138&category=

    Total is just a hair over $300, which gives you the 15% discount, taking it down to $255.

    Watch out for the brake hose lengths as they come in two flavours.

    www.unrealcycles.com has Juicy 7's for $100 per axle, and juicy 5's for even less. I purchased the 7's, they arrived in two day - complete, and now installed! Best deal I've seen....

    I just checked today and they've raised the prices to $129 for the K18's. Damn!

    Yup I blew that one also. Still works out to a pretty good deal with the 15% off.

    They have some great prices on many avid discs: $50 for the BB7s with 203mm rotors is hard to beat.

    Thanks for the tip.

    The Formula Oros arrived today so I swapped out my BB7s to the singlespeed and put the Oros on the Niner. Took me, um, a grand total of what? Ten minutes?

    MAN that was easy.

    I love the BB7s but the Formulas are better in almost every way (except price).
