What kind of riding are you doing? If you are diong extreem off road, then Hydrolic disks might come in handy (Avid), or if you just want basic stopping power, Hayes have a good range or 'cable' brakes.

Get a fork on how much you have to spend, once again we cant realy help you untill you give us more information about what you use the bike for.

Cheers.
