I've never seen anything good posted about them. new bike i'm buying for my fiancee is coming with them. I'm buying an xl full suspensino bmc speedfox and moving the parts over to a santa cruz juliana for her. I may just try to sell the bmc frame but as an XL it will definately fit me so realistically since the price was so good, I will build it up. One of us is going to end up with those elixir brakes. Fiancee isn't new to mtb but a lot of road bike experience. she will probably never get into riding anything crazy aggressive and we live in florida so it's a lot of flat ground with minimal need for hard braking. I'm wondering if I really need to just stay away from them altogether. Ideally, I'd score a set of SLX brakes at a good price somewhere.
