if ur lookin at them for an XC rig they work pretty all right, but if ur lookin at DH/FR then no get something better. I have 'em on my Trance3 for XC for about 8 months and would say that's all they're good for.

bb7's over soles any day. ive heard the Hayes HFX 9's are ok. you can score a used set of mags or juicy 5's if you keep looking and be patient. I got my mags for $100 in almost new conidition. just needed pads and longer rear hose.

I am a hayes man but I wouldn't recommend the Hayes 9's.....many people complain about them...and my buddies sucked so he switched to the Hayes Mags
