Hmm pretty nice, when I upgrade the discs on my RH they will definitely be Hydros and they will definitely be Avid Juicy, of course I won't be upgrading in a long time since the bike is new (so new in fact I haven't even ridden it).

What is the difference between Hydraulic Disk Brakes and just normal disc brakes? Nice bike and breaks though!

Did you paint your ODI lock on clamps?

So what happens to your old levers. Any chance of a KonaRider sale deluxe?

I've sold the brakes and levers already. Only have a couple of things to put up for sale right now and that is a tire and a stem, won't post those until I have more to sell.

I'm happy with the brakes, the feel of them is great and good power.

Fashion items for racer wannabes.

V brakes are better. Especially if you don't grease your tapers.

No ambition to race anymore. Ride hard enough to warrant them, besides the rigid SS will be v's.

Besides wouldn't that be more of the Juicy Carbons?
