    Best deal on some hydro brakes

    Anyone know of some good current deals on brakesets? Looking to spend around $150, maybe a bit more if rotors are included

    considering spending more to go with shimano. This year, the XT and Deore m666 are supposed to be very good. The calipers are supposed to be the exact same as the xt and you can get for around $105 each.

    otherwise hayes stroker trail at $69.98 each

    Magura Louise Alloy Bat Brake 2011 at Price Point

    Probably the best brakes I've ever used. Add ~$30/wheel for rotors and adapters, and you're golden. They have the non-bat for $10 less.

    $150 for the F&R set?

    I've seen Shimano M596 sets for under $150.

    Deore M596 hydros have had rave reviews. Scored a rare all-black set with RT51 rotors for $150 shipped off Ebay. Very nice. I dunno why the previous model, M595, costs more. Weird.

    I have a set of Hayes Stroker Trail. Nice brakes but hard to adjust!

    I just picked up the new SLX M666 brakes on Bikes | Mountain Bikes | Road Bikes & Cycling Apparel | Wiggle for $104.98 each wheel (used a coupon code I found using a web search). I think that's a smokin' deal.
