    Yeah. Juicy Ultimates and Seven both use the same diameter MC.

    Uh, yes, if you read closely, that's what he implies...

    To answer your question again, yes, the Code lever assembly with the knob will work just fine (they share calipers). The Juicy 7 and Juicy Ultimate levers will also work (a fair number of racers are on this setup to shave weight). The Code works a bit differently than the J7 or J5 and they feel a bit different. The Code uses 3 sealed cartridge bearings. The new levers are magnesium. The brake is actually cam actuated rather than the lever being attached to a pushrod.

    I thought he was implying that the lever blade actually has the knob in it.

    You're a knob, but I can't put you on my lever.

    None of the brakes have a knob on the lever blade... except the linear pull brake levers... like the Speed Dial.

    My next question cause I am a little confused now.. So I can get the Code lever meaning the whole assembly with MC and they will work with my code 5 piston which are code piston's.. Also can I just buy the Code Levers without piston and disc's?? Thanks for the help Will. Also just wondering cause I am new to Avid brakes you think this would be a good upgrade to do, add the new 08 Code levers??

    Code calipers are all the same... regardless if it's the Code or Code 5...

    Yes, you can get the Code MC alone. It's up to you.
