    Dont you love it when you've been using the same equipment for years

    I have had the same Hayes HFX-carbons on my bike through rain, sleet, snow, sand, and baby for over three years. I have never bled them. I have only replaced pads. They work!

    Now how about that!

    Now, this may not be the most appropriate place for such a thread but I have to say that all my SRAM X-9 stuff has given back to me for at least two years. My velocity rims and Hope hubs have been true the same amount of time. Sidi shoes - over ten years old and a little stiff but they are a two of my very best friends.

    That depends, I'd rather put in more riding, and wear it out

    Than save on equipment.

    My shimano brakes have 6700 km, and needed one bleed and four sets of pads.
