    2011 Avid Elixir R vs Juciy Ultimates

    I've been using 2009 Juicy Ultimates for the last year and had been happy with them until I picked up my new bike that is equipped with Avid Elixir R's. I took the new bike out for the first time today and noticed that the Elixers have way better modulation and have less inititial "squish". Will a bleed/flush of the Ultimates allow them to match the Elixer's performance or are the Elixers just better performing?

    I've never tried the Ultimates, but I'll chime in to say that my 2010 Elixir R's are better than any Juicy 3,5, or 7's I've ridden by a landslide.
    I call for a mandate to allow only road bikes on trails to limit our speeds and increase our line picking skills-FB

    a good bleed and a set of fresh semi-metallic pads works wonder with any brake. I use that setup on two sets of ultimates and love the brakes. I picked up a set of elixir cr's a while back but have not fitted them yet as the ultimates continue to impress.
