    Honestly, Hayes seems to the Manitou of the brake world. They keep making new products with new names that have all the same problems of the old ones. They are two companies I am amazed are still in buisiness and doing as well as they are.

    And to make it worse, Hayes owns Manitou now.

    The Hayes Nines are finicky, but they get the job done.

    I don't know guys... this thing does look pretty sweet, if it works as good as their (i'm sure unbiased) test riders say then i might be sold.

    They'll fail just as bad as all the other products the component *****s don't jock right away. If I had a nickel for everytime I jumped into a thread where someone was stroking it to one flavor of the month or another, I'd be a millionaire.

    I bet you run Kenda Nevegals too. Go back to reading MBA and forumulate some more posts.

    I still have respect for Hayes. A few years back Mags where great brakes, the 9s are a decent price point brake... and the el caminos were a total failure...it happens.

    Hopefully the stroker will give some credit back to Hayes.

    I don't think it was one descent, 82,000ft was collective descending for the month of January.

    The name of it, "the stroker" immediately causes my mind to fall right into the gutter.

    it seems now people are starting to imitate magura lever body style. Somehow, the Stroker looks heavy and has a weird lever body. And its white!!!, I wonder if it would look cheap??.

    Anyone found any reviews bout Hayes EC Trail??, hmm its odd that Hayes has 2 trail brakes, EC Trail and Stroker, weirdddd

    And It looks more like Shimano Hydro Dual control, haha

    My Hayes Carbon 9's have worked perfectly. I can't imagine having more stopping power or better modulation.

    About the same time Shimano started sucking - that is to say, whenever the bandwagon drove by.

    My El Caminos are not the best brakes ever - I have a couple minor complaints - but in terms of performance, they work just fine, even on 1500+ vertical feet dh descents.

    I saw yesterday that this set is in fact real. Almost came back here and corrected myself, but then realized that you guys would do it for me

    I'm running hayes 9 carbons and like them, like them for 2 years now or else I would have changed. Interested to see how these perform.

    Will probably be doing the new brakes thing in May. Will probably build up a set of Mags from loose parts, so I won't put them down.

    You don't need to call them anything - Avid BB7's are just fine for 95% of the riders on here anyway.
