I am in the market looking for a new set of hydraulics disc brake for my XC rig.
I have own quite a few already:
Hayes HMX-1, Hayes Nine, Hayes El Camino
Avid BB5, BB7, Juicy 5, Juicy 7
Hope Mini, Hope Mono Mini, Hope M4
Shimano XTR BR-M975
I am looking for either the new Hope Mono Mini, Marta SL or Formula R1.
What I really want to try is Marta and Formula as I haven't tried those yet.
R1 is really expensive. I had Magura Rim brake before and they are really good.
I am not sure about the Marta. I know Magura makes good stuff but from a friend of mine, he said BB7 are better (altho he is using Marta SL himself). I also tried out my friend new S-Work Epic which comes with Marta SL and found it worst then my Hope Mini and Mono Mini. But some racers I know said Marta are great and they are light.
However, I am leaning over on a new set of Hope Mono Mini more but might consider Marta. R1 is really $ for now.
Any thoughts on Marta?
