    Avid Code

    I was kinda wondering if the Avid Code worth the money... did you ever try them ?
    I'm in search for hydraulic disc brakes and don'T really know where to look...

    They are worth it to me. Gobs of power, nice lever feel, and the adjustment / tuning is super easy.

    FYI they will be redesigned for 2008 with a magnesium lever body, aluminum-backed organic pads, and updated caliper/banjo. Purportedly 50g lighter per wheel.

    I guess it depends on what type of riding you do. If you do downhill or freeride then they probably are killer. I haven't experienced the Codes, but I have Juicy 3's with 8 inch rotors and they are amazing!

    ok thank you for your help, I am mainly riding Dirt Jumps and a bit of freeride but wanted these because the lever are kinda compact... so it's harder to break ...

    You can always swap out levers for danger boy ones or that other brand.. twentysix (sold at competitivecyclist.com) or something.

    The levers on the Codes are no more compact than the Juicy's.

    If you mainly riding DJs then I can't possibly imaging someone needing all that power.
