I've been looking for a new set of brakes to replace my hayes 9's. i am looking for something not super expensive. My favorite so far are the codes. They are 235$ a piece i think on go ride. I am also looking at the juicys and hopes. Which are the best? Thanks

The codes are looking pretty sweet, hopes are great as well. I am realy liking my formulas right now, TONS of power, great modulation, super easy to bleed and set up, and great costomer service to boot.

what are the prices??? How much would 2 hope sets be with the rotors that have black or something on the inside. like the m6's the best, just too expensive.

You can find hopes on clearance since the new model came out, but its probably near the cost of codes. M6's do have a high bling factor but they are just too much. I have had lots of time on both and m6's just aren't worth the extra weight and price imo. But if your'e looking for single piston brakes the saints feel really nice and from what I hear are bombproof. But I have also been really itching to try out a pair Forumla K24's, too

Hope's, even the M6's, are faraly light, a set of M6s is going to be lighter than a set of codes
