    Juicy 7's

    A guy I know is willing to sell me his set for 150 after 3 years of use (how much that is, is yet to be determined). Has anyone had a problem with the juicy 7's? Right now I have Hayes HMX-4 Mechanical Disc Brakes so I am looking for an upgrade.

    Remember second hand brakes are second hand You might want to factor in the cost of new pads, rotors and a "fluid" flush and bleed. I would buy near new brakes second hand. If the brakes are a couple of years old or have done a lot of work I wouldn't pay much for them.
    Duct tape iz like teh Force. It has a Lite side and a Dark side and it holdz the Universe together.

    150 is too much to pay for J7s.

    I paid $180 for front and rear sets last Christmas.

    $150 is too much. I always go for the 50% range when purchasing used parts that are used over 6 months. If less than that time frame, I'll pay close up to new parts pricing, depending on the item.

    Now with 3 year old brakes, I'd offer $100-110 for them. Depending on condition and whether or not new brake pads are needed. Because if new pads are needed, thats another $40 on top of the cost of the brakes, and a bleed, which is around another $25 for the bleed kit, not including labor.

    I strongly recommend bleeding them to put fresh fluid in the system.


    Here are a couple of links off Feebay that have new J7's for less.

    Depending on how this one goes, this could go for under $150.00
