First, please make an effort to spell words out in full. Also, it's disc, not disk, you do not want to be using floppy disks made for a computer.

What is your budget.

You cant go wrong with Avid brakes.... they offer superior braking at a decent price. If you want mechanical get BB7's, hydro Go with Juicy 5's or 7's.... if you have a money tree and want the most badass brakes on the block... get the Avid codes... they melt my face off...
