I'd take Hope Mono M4, Juicy 7s, or Shimano Saints. Haven't ridden the other brakes, and i just don't like Hayes.

If you know it is a personal preference, then you know you are going to get every single one answered then what is the point? Why not turn it into a poll being "what brakes do you use" and go from there.

I like the Magura Gustavs.

And you should probably add Brembo to your list.......

Brembo's stop before the dime....I get off my bike...pick up the dime...and ride away .10cents richer.

Now I just gotta learn how to stop before $20 bills so I can finally pay for these things.

If u are one of the locky one that bought thos "old" Shimano XT M756 for 100-120bux new back on 03 u must agree with me... they are one of the BEST brakes ever and can pass the 'dime test' with A+ .

old school

by far the best brakes are none of those. the old broom stick with a leather shoe works best in all condtitions.
