A bicycle brake is used to slow down or cease a bicycle. There have been varied sorts of brake used
throughout historical past, and a number of other are nonetheless in use today.

Gravity lunatics swear by the basic Hayes brake and it is obvious why. The lengthy lever and massive
203mm rotor means stonking stopping energy (a 229mm upgrade is due quickly), although the blunt, abrupt
really feel means control is learnt, not guaranteed.

The brake's legendary fame in the mountains was backed up by wonderful efficiency on the dyno, with the
rotor only warping temporarily at temperatures you'll rarely see on the hill. The original Hayes slotted post
mount makes becoming very simple, and both lever might be run on the left or right. Bedding in is fast, pad
life is lengthy and general reliability is excellent. Numerous upgrade options are available and it isn't that
heavy either.

For years these brakes have been the standard in downhill and freeride. I don't perceive how. They are
decent brakes however lack true stopping power and modulation. I took these off my wifes bike because she
complained they pulsed and release whereas going downhill. I did not believe her but as soon as they had
been on my bike they did the same thing. I've gotten use to them however they don't have the facility of my
Magura Julies or my Shimano LX's. I would solely recommend these in the event that they had been on a
really discounted sale or had been on the bike after I acquired it. Either approach I would replace them with
a set of Julies once I obtained the $ninety/wheel jensonusa.com desires for them. The truth that these brakes
routinely go for a hundred-150 per wheel baffles me. These brakes haven't failed me yet.
