    XT 765 vrs. 07 Juicy 7

    I own both brake systems...and have run them both at times. Just for fun!

    My summation is that they are both great brake systems. The Juicy's are stronger while the XT's modulate a touch better. The Juicy pads last longer while the Shimano are quieter. It is a toss up.

    My point is to say most brake systems out there are very good. Get the one that is the best deal and looks best . Just kiddin'.

    Thanks for the input. I agree, both are great systems.

    What year? At 71 bucks though, as long as it doesn't have any problems, it's a good deal. Magura brakes are a little finicky to work on, but great stoppers.

    Those seem like older Louises (2003 or earlier if I remember right)

    They're not the most current generation, but they're still fine brakes.

    If you have them bled and they still don't work right, the master cylinder may be shot.

    I read somewhere these had plastic master cylinders but are warranteed for 5 years and can can be replaced with aluminum ones if they fail.

    I think they are 2003 or newer, just can pinpoint the year.
    2003 is the very last year that they can be. The design changed in 2004. I don't know about the warranty on the MCs. Even if they are shot, MCs are pretty inexpensive.

    I personally like the lever feel on Shimanos much better than the Juicys. I definatly recommend running metallic pads over the stock resins with Shimano brakes. They still modulate very well, but are much, much more powerful.
