my riding buddy's just had Avids = he's impressed, he's got 200 upfront and a 180 at the rear, I ride Hope M4's 200 - 180 and am pleased with them too! Both bikes are used as all mountain set ups.........XT = you cant go wrong - value for money etc!
Which rotors were you running? I've heard the floating discs are pretty quiet. I have a set of Hope Minis from days gone and they squeak pretty bad. I'm thinking of either some of the Hope rotors or some Galfers. Who knows, might not help at all.Michelin said:I've run Hope Mono M4's on my Moment for the last twelve months 180 front and rear but got fed up of the squealing so idecided to try juicy 7's and in my opinion they are superb 203 up front and 185 rear quite a bit more power than the Hopes and a nicer feel to them aswell no probs doing one finger braking with them they are that good and really good modulation on them aswell.They've really impressed me so far:thumbsup:
Originally i had the normal rotors but i bought the floating rotors but they were just the same although they looked really cool:thumbsup:chad1433 said:Which rotors were you running?

If you have nothing against Shimano,go with the XT's,best feeling hydro break I have ever used for the $.I have tried Hope,Hayes and Avid,for the scratch,the big S gets my vote.Asalfred.bailey said:Hi All,
I am looking to buildup my Moment as an all mountiain setup. I would like to keep the weight down if possible. Any suggestion on brakes. I have been looking at Avid juicy 7 carbon or Formula Oro Puro. Any thoughts or idea's.
I think I will be going for 180 in front and 160 rear.
I'm looking for a light crankset as well. XT seems to be a light, well priced option.
You got me on that one chad !chad1433 said:Yeah, but Shimano is made in Japan and Japan kills whales! Who can abide by that?:madmax:
