    Avid Elixir 5 whats the best place best price to get these at?

    Quick question looking to upgrade my 2011 Cannondale CX 3 which has Tektro Mech Disc brakes at 160mm, with Avid Elixir 5's at 185mm but the best price I can find is like $135


    any comments or help maybe better recommendations would be welcome.


    If you are wondering why Avid Elixir 5's ? well they are White, they match my all white cannondale CX 3, and they have all they features I need.

    IIRC, $135 is already pretty close to the price you'd get if you had a shop sponsorship.

    So used on EBay would be about the only way to go lower. Sorry I can't give you the answer you want.

    Is that $135 per side, or per set?

    OK, lemme revise my answer.

    Typing "avid elixir 5" into Google Shopping gave me a bunch of hits. Down to $110 on the first page.

    I bought mine a while ago. So I think the lines and prices have been shaken up some. (Or maybe I paid that for the set? Can't remember... Nice brake, though.)

    whats the difference vs the 2010 avid Elixir 5's for $104 I have found vs. the 2011 models which cost $20 or $30 more?

    any improvements?
