POLL: what brakes do you have/want to have?

What kind of brakes do you currently have and what brakes would you like to have (because you feel like brakes you have now ain't cutting it).

I'll start: I have 203mm Grimeca System 12 up front and 160mm System 8 rear.

Hayes HFX 9
8" front
6" back

I'm actually pretty happy with my Hayes (except for the flexy levers, time to call dangerboy). I do ride hard and fast, but I never have had problems with fading or anything. Even on the local 13 mile downhill.

Avid Juicys w/8" Polygon rotors ft/bk

Only thing I would change is maybe going to round rotors to keep the bk one from chirppin'.

I got myself a rear 8" 22mm Hayes Mag, and a front 8" Hayes HFX9 with a broken front Hayes Mag laying in my garage.


Will be getting some HMX2s for my Titan.

Have Hayes Mag HD 8" and HFX9 8".

Want/will have Hayes El Camino 8"

If you haven't seen the *new* ad for the El Camino's, keep an eye out for it they look sweet. Very similiar features to the Avid Juicy, which took some of it's features from Magura HS* Hydro rims brakes.

I have mechanical tektros, probablly 6" front and back.

What do I want? I'm not sure, havent really looked into brakes lately. Some Hayes with 8" rotors would be pretty sick though..
