I want to get hydros for my bike, the current BB5s work just fine and provide plenty of power but sometimes I don't like the feel of them and I know pads are hell to get so I just want to upgrade and avoid a hassle, I just can't resist the nice squishy feeling and power of a hydraulic brake but obviously I can wait, after trying out some Hayes HFX 9 and Avid Juicy I decided I wanted to go the Avid way, mainly because of all the ergonomics and ease-of-setup features, so I had Juicy 7 on my mind but I was wondering when is Avid coming out with the 2007 line? I've read about the Juicy Ultimate and Code brakes but any news on what to expect for the 2007 Juicy 7? I'm asking because I can either get 2006 7s at a bargain price or go the extra mile for 2007 7s if they have any worthwhile new features.

So... whats the word on 2007 Avid disc brakes, when are they coming out? When have other new model avid disc brakes come out?

also... will the new ultimates be available in an IS mount design without the use of adapters?

the black's are i think 10grams less than the current carbon's. Unless you're willing to spend 250-270 per brake i'd say just get teh current juicy's. Also from all the pictures i've seen of teh ultimates i don't think the ultimates will be available without using the IS adapters.

all of avid's brakes have the post mount on the caliper...and you need an adapter to mount to IS I doubt that they would change that because of the way their CPS washers work
