Upgrades, upgrades, upgrades!

The upgrade bug bit me hard recently.

Went full SRAM X.9 (minus the front derailleur) a little while back, and just today after having MORE PROBLEMS with the friggin' Hayes Sole setup ordered the Avid Juicy 7 XC hydros front and rear. 315 bucks with shipping from pricepoint.

Not the most sound financial decision I suppose, but what the heck - I love riding, and this new purchase should solve my last real gripe with the NRS...leading to happiness and prosperity

You won't regret the avids. They took some time to break in, but the control and power was unheard of haha...Even with my left hand (slightly disabled) I can one finger brake from 60km/hr...that has never happened with any other brake I have
