    New question here. Avid Codes

    I'm really considering these for my new DH rig.
    Read some good reviews.
    Cons = heavy
    I also heard extremely powerful.
    Hell...sounds like the perfect brake for non stop DH and shuttle runs.

    Anyone see a reason not to try these things?

    I've had em for more than two weeks now. They are broken in nicely and feel MUCH better than the Juicy 7s they replaced. They have plenty of power when you need it. It's not at the expense of modulation though. In fact I'd say the modulation is a little better and the feel a little more consistant than the 7s. Not to mention they look the part.

    curious about the weight....are they really anchors?

    I still think I'm going to order them.
    Getting a really good deal.....

    No - they are not anchors - the weight 'issue' is greatly exaggerated by people needing some means to chime in to threads.

    Brakes are one place where a DHer should not compromise performance for weight saving.

    theyre hella nice.. we installed a pair on a V-10 at the shop the other day. they were nice and strong right out of the box, w/o properly being broken in. ill get to try them once they're bedded and everything. a little expensive, but i think they're worth it.
    I went to the doctor and told him "hey doc, it hurts when I go like this" and the doc said "Does the rear feel too soft?"

    I rode these brakes in the weekend really surprised me I did not like the J7s at all but this brake felt like everything I like in a brake great modulation feel and heaps of power, useable power, weight never noticed it and who cares on anything over 6 inches, if ya can brake later ya ride faster esspecially if ya brakes don't send ya to the ground.

    Very surpised and would definitley rate in there only the V2s felt as strong and I'd need to ride em side by side to see which I liked best, but I now wouldn't be surprised if it was the Codes.
