    Fantom 29Pro's shipping with either Avid Juicy or Elixir?
    I was looking at the Motobecane Fantom 29Pro and I noticed they are including either


    Brakes - Avid Juicy or Elixir (cannot choose) Hydraulic Disc front and rear, 185mm rotor
    I just want to know if people are receiving them with Elixir's (which model) and are they an upgrade to the Juicy 3's?

    I was just wondering what the difference was before ordering.

    Elixir’s are lighter in weight and easier to work with and adjust. Designed to have a more stopping force. This info was gathered from the Sram, site… the manufacture of the components

    I have a confession, I made a mistake… I see the words 29er PRO and Elixir in the same sentence and I just assume it’s the 29er PRO SL. The fact we talking about the 29er PRO only. That is a different animal.

    I guess, they must of changed that recently. It must be a pre 2011 release. There hasn’t been too many reviews on this bike however, the ones that are on here, people have received the juicy 3’s.

    Sorry for the confusion on my part.

    Mine came with J3's

    They seem to work fine for the terrain around here, (mostly flat with occasional flattness).

    I may change them out for something more adjustable in the future, if a deal comes rolling by.
