If you have the money, go with the Hopes. They certainly look cool. What kind of bike/riding are we talking about?

My Hayes HFX-9's suck, IMO....
But my Hayes MX-1's are great.

Go Figure, huh?

Haha, same here, Ive had no problems with my MX-1's. Most my friends have 9's and they are always messing them up.

Oh, thats too bad. Mine came on my bike, I dont mind them, and im sticking with them until they crap out on me. Why replace something just because everyone else practically hails down to another company or model?

My hayes rock...8 inch rotors makes all the diff in the world. The only thing I dislike is my front brake lever adjuster screw backs a little bit out every 50 miles or so.

I would go HOPE for the cool factor.
