I'm running 203mm F/R with 4-pot Saints. Great if you weigh more than 200lbs.
So I bought some AVID Codes 203/185 and when I got them, did some more research and have decided they are total overkill. I weight 185 geared. Trying to trade them for some Elixirs.... Going 185 F/R. Think that's best for my needs and weight savings. I would save almost a 1/2 pound! I hear the Codes are specifically for downhill.

If you would like to try Stroker Carbons, I have some you can have super cheap. PM me. They are awesome for modulation and will be a lot of brake for someone that only weighs 185.

I need to sell these first. Running out of cash. I had the Strokers on my 08 Reign. Still have 1 on there, the other broke. They were pretty good. But I had the sticky lever issue that Hayes had on their first batch in which they sent out the fix it kits....

Well, these don't have a sticky lever and are pretty darn good. Carbon levers with an extra in case you break one. Lemme know, they should be more powah than any 185lb rider could need.
