    New Juicy 7's and Pictures

    Hey guys, a little while back I picked up some Juicy 7's 203mm DH model. I am very impressed with the brakes themselves, they have a ton of power and a good range of modulation. Its a effort less brake too, just one finger will be able to lock either wheel.

    I'm still in the process of breaking them in, they're getting there, a few more rides. They were easy to install (Did kinda a crappy job of cable routing, but it works out and is more efficient) and easy to adjust. I think they were worth the price. Everything is on par.

    Here are some pictures:

    juicy 7's are better than all hayes, even el camino's, hands down

    i should have got juicy 5 tho because i don't use the contact adjuster, i just leave it dialed all the way out.

    Easily the best brake in the world rite now, only drawback is a small lack of power at speeds above 35 mph, but the only brake i know that can take that is a hope mono6, and those brakes are not that good.....

    They don't compare, thats how much better they are. I had Hayes 9's, and at first I thought they were the best brakes ever. They slowly got crappier and crappier as time went on. They got shimmed, new pads, and bled. They would either ride really nice, or suck. Every single Northstar trip would result into a different brake pull.

    The 9's had good modulation and fair power, but the Juicy's just KILL the 9's. With one finger endo's (Seriously...), enough modulation for the entire day, and on the fly adjustments, the Juicy 7's kill the 9's. They are so powerful, going down a steep, very steep decent feels like nothing.

    Overall, the Juicy's destroy every single brake I have ridden, and I love the,.

    That is a sweet setup you have there, nice looking brakes too.
    I dig the rotors.
    Question:What kind of tires do you run and what size? Nevegal 2.5?
    They look very impressive so I wonder.

    Looks like the 2.5 nevegal DH tire.

    I personally think that tire needs a wider rim, but that's just me...

    Maybe not that relevant, but those Avid levers look neat. Not just pretty, but there are not that many places on them where dirt, grass and such can embed itself.

    BTW, has anybody compared performance between Juicys and Avid mechanicals with good cables?

    /\ Yeah, the levers are really nice. The details of the brakes are very good. Each item of the brake was taken into effect when they were designing the brake system. The fluid resivor on the levers are sloped down and out of the way so they wont clog your bars like the Hope and Shimano Levers.

    Adding fluid and bleeding seems relativley easy too.

    Ugh, I really wish I loved them too. My brakes....I love them...they own...but they are making the WIERDEST noise with high brake pressure at lower speeds. (Burbling, Gargling...like a leaky faucet sort of).

    Thinking about getting a XT 203mm Rotor....anyone know about if that fixes the problem or what does? Feedback=good. Thanks.
