    Good job! new Juicy 5 (pics and small review)

    i just got a pair of new juicy 5s a couple days ago and thought id post some pics and a small review. took them out on tunnel trail today with scabrider. about a 4 mile long trail, very demanding on your brakes. man they are sweet. no fade at all by the end of the trail. improved my riding already. took them awhile to break in but once they did man are they sweeeeeet. the wavy rotors make some sound and vibrate a bit but i think it might dissapear as i continue to ride them. dosent bother me too much. only feel it when very lightly braking at very low speed. could be fixed with differant rotors too. but beside that no problems at all. awsome brakes. very easy to install too. just thought id share. here are some pics of my bike and the brakes and my cuddly rottweiller.

    power is great. they were ok in the start when i first put them on but now after braking them in they are very powerful. greenfishsports.com has a killer deal on them right now. around 130 bucks for one i think. got both mine off ther for about 280. and i got a free shirt .

    cant really say, havent ridden the sevens. from reading about em the sevens just have more tuning options, but the five are plenty strong enough for me, and i do ride em really hard.

    good deal for the juicy 5s

    i just got em at beyondbikes.com for around $100 each. beyond bikes usuallly has some sort of coupon for 10% off also so you can get em for under 100 bucks each.
