I would get hayes as they are known to be reliable and easy to install etc. I am not a fan of running a product in its first or second year of production. Avid makes killer Mechs does not mean they can do killer hydros
Hayes are really good brakes but if I had a choice I would definately try the juicy's. I dont see how they could be bad at all. I had pad adjuster just like the one on the juicy's on a pair of hydraulic rim brakes I had and I loved it.
Hayes... because they are known to make better parts and stuff... u could always try the avids though... they may be better

Haven't they been in R&D forever? When did you first hear about an Avid Hydro in production, 3 to 4 years ago?Originally posted by Raiyn
I'm not sure Avid's had a LOT of time to get the Juicy's through R&D so they should be right, but Hayes is KNOWN to be a good product........ Awww fudge it, I'll stick with my Avid mechs.
That's just my opinion, I could be wrong.

Honestly, I don't think you can go wrong either way, but the Hayes Hydros are tried and true. I think I'd give the Avid's a whirl just based on their good reputation alone. Avid knows brakes, that's for sure.
My money pits:
Cannondale Jekyll 500 with Avid Mechs and Sun DS2 rims with XT disc hubs.
Cannondale F900 with SRAM XO shifters/derailler, Mavic X3.1 tubeless wheels, Avid Mechs, Race Face Next LP cranks, Time ATAC pedals, SRAM levers.
