    Just a suggestion, you might get some unwanted heat from the regulars here if you don't qualify that question with details like: bike, riding style, terrain, riding conditions, experience, frequency of riding, etc

    Good luck

    As mentioned letting others know what your riding is helpfull.

    Every one has a opinion & there brakes are the best. Personally I like the old Hayes Mag's but the New Stroker is soooo much better. Modulation, control of the brakes is what the Stroker is about. If you want to lock it up quickly with a ton of power go with the Juicy 7's.

    The Brembo on a Lingenfelter Corvette Z06. You did ask.

    But really there is no answer to your question. Are you a 110lb flatland leisure rider or a 250lb worldcup downhill racer? See what I mean?

    Don't bother giving us the specs of you and your riding as we can only give you our personal preferences and opinions. You decide your criteria for brakes and then get over to the Review section of this fine site (this is why it's called Mountain Bike REVIEW) and see what others have to say about the brakes they have. Disregard a few highs and lows and decide what is the best brake for you.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    That answer falls squarely into the "Why didn't I think of that?" category.
